Green Day

Wow!!! What a great first week of school we had.  It’s been so fun getting to know each other and doing all of our fun color day activities.  Today for green day we read  Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Leoni and did a yummy color mixing activity with icing that I’m sure you heard all about.

Another one of our favorite green stories today was  Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.  After we read the funny rhyming story we wrote about a food we would not like to eat.
