Trinity Preschool Activities for Monday, September 22, 2014
Maple room: MWF class
We read "Applesauce season" by Eden Ross Lipson
We had the children each bring in an apple today, and we cut them into small pieces and made applesauce. We ate it at snack time.
We also did a taste test with red, green, and yellow apples and made a graph of our favorites. We discussed the graph too.
We sorted apples by color.
We estimated how many seeds we thought would be inside an apple and then cut into the apple to check.
We had apple stencils at the easel and we used roller brushes to paint over them.
We did the September song, and A P P L E for music today.
Willow Room. M W F class
We read The little mouse and the big red apple" by A H Benjamin
We asked " how are you feeling today?"
We glued tissue paper to an apple shape paper, some children glued the tissue flat and some scrunched it up.
We had two sided easels on a table, one side is dry erase markers, and the other was chalk and erasers.
We did the apple tree felt board rhyme, the sneezing song, and come and join into the game for music time today.
We talked about germs and about coughing into our sleeve. We did a special activity to show how germs spread from one persons hands to another.

We used a hot air popper and popped a bunch of popcorn that we put in a large tub with scoops, cups, etc. we also popped some popcorn for snack.
