Trinity preschool activities for Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Willow Room: MWF class

We had fire fighter Jim visit our class today and talk abotu fire safety.

We read "Dot the fire dog" today.

We asked the children "Have you ever seen a real fire fighter?"

We decorated paper fire hats with black tempra paint and the number stampers  9 1 1.

We had Dalmatian shape dogs at the easel and we used corks dipped in black paint to add the  spots to the dogs.

We had a paper with a building drawn on it and pretend fire coming out of the windows.  The children used real water in the fire extinguisher bottles to squirt the fires out.

We used Mr. Potato Head pieces to decorate our pumpkin.  The children could add the pieces into holes we punched with a screwdriver ito our pumpkin.

Our pretend Hen "hatched her eggs" and now we have little pretend baby chicks.

We did "I'm a firefighter, the fire truck song, When it is autumn and the cool bear hunt for music time.

Maple Room: MWF class

We read "The little orange house story" by Jen Stangi

We did pumpkin painting with real pumpkins that we cut in half crosswise.

We had leaf shape stencils and special water color pen brushes at easel.

We had fire fighter Jim visit our class today to talk abotu fire safety.

We did the October song, Scarecrow, scarecrow, silly dance contest for music today.

We did a Halloween Pipe cleaner Beading Activity today.

We had pretend flames in the water table floating.  They each have numbers on them and the children had squirt bottles with water in them and they would squirt the "flame" the number of times that was on it.  So a flame with a number one got one squirt.  A flame with the number ten, got ten squirts.

We had pretend fire extinguishes and pretend flames around the room, the children could pretend to put out the fires.

Oak Room: Pre-K  class

We  read "Owl Babies" by Martin Waddell and "the little old lady who was not afraid of anything" by Megan Lloyd.

We made owl pictures today using fiber fill, paper, google eyes, crayons, feathers, and twigs to make an owl family picture.  The kids loved doing this today.

We did "5 spotted owls", "One little pumpkin smiling", and Face the facts" for music today.

Stay and Play:

We read "Cock a doodle HOOOOOOOO!" by Mike Manning

We painted with brushes that slip onto our finger tips.

We did the ABC letter sounds song, 5 little ducks, and Let's go fly a kite while moving with ribbons.

We played the game "Trouble" as a group and we enjoyed the car race track.
