On Thursday morning we had another color monster waiting on our desk for us when we arrived. We also worked more independently to finish the writing prompt on the back side of our paper about something that is yellow.
The first yellow book we read was In My New Yellow Shirt by Hideko Takahashi. Then we made a class book about all the things we could be in our yellow shirts. What great imaginations we have!!!
On Friday for “Green Day” we began by reading a great describing book called The Aminal by Lorna Balian. That’s right . . . it’s really spelled that way!!!
After reading a few pages we stopped and drew pictures to predict what we thought the “aminal” looked like. Then after we finished the story we drew a picture and wrote a sentence about what the “aminal” really was.
We also 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. We began with the primary colors and experimented mixing them together to make the secondary colors. A few of us even experimented Another one of our favorite green stories was Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. After we read the funny rhyming story we made a class book by writing about a green food we would not like to eat.
We ended the day by unscrambling a sentence about something that is green.
As you can see we have had a very fun and busy first week of school!!!
