Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Oak Room- Pre- K class

We read "Commotion in the Ocean" by GilesAndreae (highlights many sea creatures)
and we read "I am a fish- The life of a clownfish" by D. Stille

We worked in our journal notebooks on the letter Z words and pictures

We painted a clown fish at the easel.

We have our dramatic play area set up as an under the sea adventure.

We did Baby Beluga song and book, and we did "We dove into the ocean" a song about sea creatures using props and action songs.

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

We had the water table with fish sorting.

We did an estimating jar of how many marbles are in Jar A?  We had jar B with 100 marbles in it and so we could use that as a comparison to decided how many were in the Jar A.

Maple Room:

We read "The Berenstain Bears and the big Red Kite" by Stan and Jan Berenstain

We did a cutting project, we cut out kites.
We had watercolors with fingers as paintbrushes.

We did letter F activities and we took the children out in small groups to play a number recognition game.

We did the April song (first day of it), and the Month's song. We also started practicing our songs for Mother's Day.

Willow Room:

We did the rhyme "little Miss Muffet" by Iza Trapani

We asked the children "Do you have the letter P in your name?

We used spoons as our method of painting, the children cold drip paint off the spoon, or use the back of the spoon to spread the paint or make prints with the spoon.

After we did the Little Miss Muffet rhyme today, we had the children act it out.  Some children pretended to be Miss Muffett, and some pretended to be the spider who scared her away.

We did "Little fish, let's go swimming" and "Jump up, turn around" for music today.

The children are enjoying the construction zone we have set up in the dramatic play area,  We have trucks, tracks, tools, construction hats, vests to wear too.

Stay and Play:

We read "Its only Stanley" by Jan Agee

We drew with a white crayon on paper inside a stencil.  Then we painted over it with glitter water colors.

We played with the parachute and a stomp rocket outside today.  It was beautiful outside.

We did Disappearing rabbits- Guess which number rabbit was taken away?

We did 5 black and shiny crows a sing a long rhyme

We used incline tubes with marbles and cars.
