Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Willow Room- MWF class

"Whoosh went the wind" by Sally Derby was out story today.

We glued fun foam shapes onto our special surprise we made for our moms, we will give them to our at our Mother's Day party next week. The children worked so hard on them.
We had long rollers with patterns on them to paint turtle shapes at the easel.

We worked on a list of words that start with the letter U and we made our alphabet word picture chart.

We did a science project about clouds.  We fit 14 cotton balls into a cup of water and they absorbs all of the water.  Then when we lifted them up, the water could be squeezed out of the cotton balls. It is like the clouds absorbing the water in the atmosphere and when they get all filled up, the water comes out of them as rain.

Oak Room- Pre- K class

We read "Waiting for wings" by Lois Ehlert
and we read "Harry and the lady next door" by Gene Zion
We worked on pages for our Math books, today was 1-1 correspondence.  This is the understanding that a number corresponds to "how many" so if we say there are 4 - it is because there are four of something.  Today they had a paper filled with squares and they put a dab of paint into each square as they counted it. After they did it, they made dot pictures using the dab a dot painters.

At the easel we painted on foil.

We did an opposites match activity and we also did an estimating activity.

Maple Room: MWF class
We had our "camping day" today.  The children came to school dressed in clothes for camping fun.  We had a tent set up, a pretend camp fire, "grass" and bugs in the sensory table.  BBQ and camping supplies in the dramatic corner.  We had lanterns, flashlights, etc.  We had the lights off in the room and only the light from the windows.  We all sat around our pretend camp fire to listen to the story. "Good Night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite" and we read "Sam and the fire fly".
 For art, we made "jars of fire flies" by making black thumb prints on the paper and drawing on wings.  Then we spread glue inside the wings and sprinkled gold glitter on the paper to stick to the glue.  We had green grass paper and bug stampers at the easel.  We went outside and went on a bug hunt.  We had the plastic pool set up with magnetic fish and fishing poles.

Stay and Play:  

We read "Ten Eggs in a nest" by Marilyn Sadler

We dipped cookie cutter shapes in paint and pressed them onto paper. Then we painted the middle of the design with glitter paint.

We did a songs from a sing a long song bank. and we did The little fish action song.
