Monday: Red Day- We read the story, The Little Red Hen, and practiced cutting, coloring, and gluing to make our own little red hens. We also practiced writing the word, "red" in our journals and drew pictures of things that are red like strawberries, apples, fire trucks, etc.
Tuesday: Yellow Day- We read the story, Dandelion, which is about a lion that learns he is perfect just the way he is, and he doesn't need to change his appearances. We practiced our fine motor skills and made our own Dandelion by tearing paper to be his mane.
Wednesday: Blue Day- We read the Caldecott Award winning story, Blueberries for Sal. Sal is a young girl who goes out with her mother to pick blueberries. We practiced counting to ten by gluing ten paper blueberries onto our bucket crafts and learned to spell, "blue" in sign language.
Thursday: Green Day- We read one of my favorite books- Little Blue and Little Yellow. Little Blue and Little Yellow discover that when they hug together, they mix and make green! The children got their very own little blue ball and little yellow ball of play doh. The children "hugged" the balls together until it made green!
Friday: Purple Day- We will watch a short video of Harold and the Purple Crayon. The children will practice writing the word, "purple" and drawing purple items like grapes, balloons, plums, eggplants, etc. into our journals. Colors week is always so much fun!
