Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, September 25, 2014

Willow Room- T/TH Class

We read "Yes, We can!" by Charles Fuge

We painted with foam textured rollers at the table today.

We used magnetic face pieces to make faces at the easel.

W did Sticky Bubble Gum, Wheels on the Bus, and Brown bear for music time.

We did a 5 little germs rhyme today too.

Maple Room- Thursday class

We read Llama, llama, Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney

We did Hands inside the circle, and sticky bubble gum for music time

We read a special book about counting with M& M candies and we used the candies to follow
along and do adding, subtracting, counting and graphing.

Oak Room: Pre- K class

We read "Little Blue and Little Yellow" by Leo Lionni

We did a literacy art activity to tie into the story too.  We had the children cut out a circle shape, then they were given some yellow paint and some blue paint.  When they painted them together on their paper, they got green paint, like our story.

We did a color bird rhyme - name other things that start with the same color as the bird. and we did the song "Colors" by Hap Palmer.  Each child is give a color to hold and when the song says to stand up or sit down, they follow the directions.

We made a corn starch and glue clay today to use at the sensory table

We did our letter graph, Does your name have the letter C in it?

Recipe for the play dough: original calls for equal parts of corn starch and Elmers glue, but I found  that I needed more cornstarch than glue.  It is also very sticky when you knead them together and I thought it would never be OK, but it ends of smooth and pliable.  Very soft, great texture, and gluten free if you are looking for that.
