Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, April 11, 2014

Oak Room: Pre- K class

We read "Clumsy Crab" by Ruth Galloway and we read another Elephant and piggie book by Mo Willems

We brushed bright paint colors onto bubble wrap.  Then we made a print by pressing paper onto the bubble wrap .  Later the teachers added a sea creature shape frame to turn it onto a colorful sea creature.

We did "the river" and action song on a Bill Hooper CD

We did a counting game with flowers and added circles for the number of petals that was listed on the card.

We did an ABC game using a pocket chart; the children placed the matching picture and appropriate letter for each letter of the alphabet.

Maple Room: 

We read "Waiting for wings" by Lois Ehlert
We worked on a special project today to give our mom's on Mother's Day- so it is going to have to be a surprise!

We had butterfly shapes at the easel with paint.

We did "The April song" and practiced our songs for Mother's Day.

We did letter U activities.

We read "From caterpillar to butterfly" by Deborah Heilgman 

Willow Room- MWF class

We read "A rainbow of my own" by Don Freeman
We asked the children "Do you have the letter R in your name?"

We did a group art project- we glued fun foam letters onto a big piece of paper to make an ABC colored rainbow.  It is in the hall.
We painted using paint pallets and water color brushes.

Over in the meadow by Dr. Jean, O Hey, Oh Hi, Hello by Jim Gill, and Stick to the glue by Jim Gill are the songs we did for music today.

We looked at the letter R, at things that start with the letter R and talked about the sounds the letter makes.

We read "Wake up, it's spring" by Lisa Campbell Ernst

We put a mirror in the sun shine and made a rainbow shine in our own classroom.

Stay and Play:

We read "Two little birds" by Mary Newell DePlama

We did a creative art process by spreading yellow paint with sponge rollers all over the paper.  Then we used stampers dipped in red or blue paint and added it to our picture.  We noted the new colors that it made by mixing the yellow and red or yellow and blue.

We did a color rhyme called "Carl the clown" and we did "I can dance"- a song where you alternate sitting quietly and then dancing.
