We spent the last two days of the week working hard in first grade trying to finish up our final few colors. Thursday was a day full of opposites. We read several books about opposites and brainstormed a list of all the pairs of opposites we could think of.
Then we made a book of our own about opposites and illustrated it. While we were working we enjoyed a yummy black & white treat.
We also read Harry The Dirty Dog by Gene Zion and Margaret Bloy Graham. In the story Harry was a white dog with black spots. After running away from home to avoid taking a bath he got very dirty and turned into a black dog with white spots. We made a dirty dog art project and wrote about how Harry got dirty in the story.
Friday was brown day and we read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin. This story reviews all of the color words so it was a great way to wrap up our color days. We worked hard on a brown bear art project that we hung in the hallway and we made a brown bear book of our own to bring home and share with our family.
