Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, April 4, 2015

Our caterpillars and Luna Moth cocoon arrived and we got to look at them.We will watch to see how they develop.

Maple Room- MWF class

We read "The beautiful kite" by Andrea Spalding

We used these fun "flip flop" painters that have designs on the bottoms to make our paintings today.  We will turn them into kites after they dry.

We had kite shapes at the easel, and used dab a dot painters to decorate them.

We did the April song, Months of the year, and we did "Let's go fly a kite", using scarves.
We did our letter T activities on dry erase boards

Oak Room: Pre- k class

We read "Figety Fish" by Ruth Galloway and "Smiley Fish" by Ruth Galloway
We also read another Elephant and Piggie book

We cut a triangle shape out of a paper plate, then we attached it back to the paper plate like a "tail.  The cut out part, looks like the fish mouth, and then we decorated them.We glued tissue paper strips.

We painted angel fish shapes at the easel with blue and yellow paint.

We did "Went to the pet store". and "Ready, set, move" from the Greg and Steve CD for music today.

We are working on our last letter now, we talked about words that start with the letter Z.

We put one of those "growing fish" into water and we took it out today to measure how much it has grown.

Willow Room:  MWF class

We read "Clara caterpillar" by Pamela Duncan Edwards

We asked the children "Have you ever seen a caterpillar?"

We used marshmallows and Q-tips to paint with today!  We made caterpillars on leaf shapes.
We had a magnetic alphabet caterpillar at the easel.  We put the letters in the right order to create a caterpillar.

We did "I like my hat" and "There is a dog in school" for music today.

We read "The Butterfly Garden Book" by Margaret McNamara.  

We thought of words that start with the letter P.

Stay and Play:

We read a brand new book called "The day the crayons quit" by D. Daywalt.  This cute story is about the crayons writing a letter to the little boy who owns the box of crayons , explaining why they are unhappy.

We used markers to draw a picture on white paper towel.  The we placed a white paper towel under the white paper and the children  used a spray bottle to wet the paper towel.. The color transferred to the white paper below.

We did "We're going on a bug hunt" a song and chant. and we did "Tap your toe" for music today.
