Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, April 24, 2014

Oak RoomPre- K class

We had our "Beach Day" today to end our unit on Under the sea.
The children came to school dressed in fun summer clothes and brought their beach towels to sit on.
We read "Harry by the sea" by Gene Zion
We played a "guess what is in the beach bag" game.

For art, we brought out stencils and the children used a paint brush to paint glue inside the stencil shape.  Then they removed the stencil shape and sprinkled colored sand on the paper.  It only stuck to the glue and made the design show up.

At the easel we had sand castle shape paper and paint with sand in it to use to paint the sand castle.

We had wet sand in tubs to use scoops and sand molds.
We had play dough with sand mixed in to it for a new texture.
We had water tables with plastic fish and nets to catch the fish and set them free.
We had a water table with the waterfall toys in it.

We did pretend surfing to music.  We played pass the fish, when the music stops and you are holding the fish, you stand up and say "BLOOP, BLOOP"  .

We played Balloon volleyball with partners and balloon bad mitten, we hit the balloons with a paper plate attached to a paint stick.

Willow Room- Terrific 2's and 3's class

We talked about rainy days.

We painted storm clouds using the shaving cream and glue mixture with a little bit of paint added to make it look stormy.
We painted with real paint rollers on paper taped to the wall.

We practiced our songs for our Mother's Day tea.

We did an umbrella color matching activity.
We put a sea creature in water to see what will happen to it.
