Trinity Preschool Activities for Monday, January 26, 2015

Willow Room:

We read "Snowy's special Secret" by Guildo Van Cenechten

We made snowflake prints by using thread spools dipped in white tempra paint and pressed with the end down on paper.  Then we sprinkled glitter on top.

We mixed dish soap into powdered tempra paint and painted at the easel with small brushes.

We did "Ring the bells, winter time is here", "Turn around", and "Snowmen Pokey" for music today.

We did the rhyme "Red mittens hanging on a line".

We talked about the letter D, the sound it makes, and we looked at objects that start with the letter D.

Oak Room:

We read "Sleepover with Beatrice and Bear" by Monica Carnesi

We also read " Sleep Big Bear Sleep" by Maureen Wright

We decorated a snowman shape with markers and put it on contact paper.  Then we added a base and made it look like a snow globe, We hung them on our windows,

We did "Old Mc Donald had a band" using instruments, sticky bubble gum, and some hibernation rhymes for music.

We have a tent set up in the room to pretend it is a bear cave.  We have foot prints on the floor leading to it.

We made an ice snowman on Friday by putting together 2 balls of ice using salt as the binder.  We dressed it up like a snowman and checked to see if it melted at all.  then we put it in the freezer over the weekend and each evening and we  will watch it again each day this week.

Maple Room:

We read "One winter's day" by M Chrstina Butler

We did plexiglass painting.  The children painted on plexiglass circles, and then we pressed paper on top.  The children did it over and over and made several circle shapes on their paper.

We used the ends of spools dipped in paint and pressed onto a snowflake shape paper at the easel.

We did letter H activities on dry erase boards.

We skyped this morning with some of the children's grandma in Indiana.

Stay and Play:

We read "Bella gets her skates on" by Ianbrow

We used bed roller wheels and plastic pizza cutters dipped in paint to make fun designs on paper.

We did "The freeze dance" with bells. and "Way up high in the snowy tree"
