Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, October 3, 2014

Willow Room- MWF class

"Who said Meow?" by Maria Polushkin

We asked the children today "Which farm animal sound can you make?"

We painted using flip flop painters that have designs on the bottom

We colored paper at the easel with oil pastel crayons.

We did can you leap like a frog?, the cool bear hunt, and 2 little black birds for music today.

We did a rhyme to the tune of BINGO, using farm animal names: Piggy, Chick, Horse, Doggy, and Sheep.

Maple Room: MWF class

We read "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" by Eric Carle

We did a 3 D art project today. We rolled paper towel cardboard tubes back and forth across paint on a tray.

We had red, yellow and blue paint at the easel with various kinds of rollers.

We have been talking about Primary and secondary colors.

We did an ice cube melting experiment - we put a red ice cube, and a yellow ice cube in a cup; a red and a blue ice cube in a cup, and a yellow and a blue ice cube in a cup.  Then when they melted, we looked to see what color it had become.  We put a paper towel in the cup to show the new color.

We played a game of colors, "Abracadabra, which color did I take from you?"

We also read "Little Blue, Little Yellow" by Loe Lionni

We did The October song, and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, with the children acting out the parts to the song. for music time today.

We painted a picture with paint and brushes on a slanted easel.  Then when we were done, we sprayed the paper with water to see the design run.

We talked about words that start with the letter D.

We did the 5 senses song, and "Leaky Umbrella" using maracas
