We read "A new house for mouse" by Petr Horacek
We did marble painting with red and yellow paint. We put marbles in paint and then onto paper that was in a box. The children rolled the box back and forth to move the paint around on the paper.
We had rollers at the easel to use for painting.
We did the song "A P P L E" to the tune of Bingo, and we did the chicken dance, 5 little apples rhyme and tommy thumb for music.
We talked about seasons, we read a Knowledge quest book (books designed to align with the common core learning standards) called "Skip through the seasons".
Willow Room: MWF class
We told the verbal story about the little red house with no windows and no doors and a star inside. (It turns out to be an apple)
We asked the children "Have you ever seen a house with no windows and no doors"
We cut a real apple in half and found the star inside. Then we used it to paint apple prints.
We had contact paper at the easel and the children attached yarn to the sticky side.
We did pass the bean bag, and walking shoes for music time.
We did "Mr. Apple worm" rhyme
Oak Room: Pre- K class
We did a flannel board story about the apple house with no windows and no doors and a star inside.
We read "Apple Trouble" by Ragnhild Scamell
We cut up our apples we brought in to make applesauce, which we ate for snack today.
We had apple stencils at the easel.
We did our letter D chart. We also graphed the apples the children brought in by color. We talked about the different things we can make with an apple. We are learning about our sense of taste.
We did "Way up high in the apple tree" and "List of dances" for music today.
Stay and Play: We read "The Best Gift of all" by Jonathan Emmett
We painted on plexiglass and then made a print of our painting.
We did list of dances, couch potato pokey, underneath the broomstick, and pass the apple for music today.
