Our first full week

We have been really busy learning our class rules and settling into our routine.  I am so excited at how much progress we have already made.  This week we worked on colors and shapes.  We have been using the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do You See to help us with our colors.  On Red Day we used torn paper to make a red bird.  On Blue Day we used yarn to create a blue horse and read Blueberries for Sal.  In the story Sal went with her mother to pick blueberries.  We used blue finger paint to fill our bucket with blueberries.  On Yellow Day we used tissue paper to make a yellow duck.  We also read Curious George Goes to School.  We all made yellow hats like the character in the story wears (stay tuned for a picture of us all wearing our yellow hats).  On Thursday we read one of my favorite books, Go Away Big Green Monster.  The kids loved making their very own green monster.  We also made a green frog.  Later that afternoon we discovered that yellow and blue make green by using yellow and blue finger paint.  The last day of the week we made an orange goldfish using ribbon.   Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (AKA our wonderful librarian Ms. Millwood) visited our class for a group photo (stay tuned for picture to be posted later). I can't wait to see who all Brown Bear meets next week.  Here is a list of our color days for next week.
Monday-----Purple Day.
Tuesday-----Brown Day.
Wednesday--Black Day.
Thursday----White Day.
Friday-------Pink or Rainbow Day.
