Last week on Friday we finished up our color week unit.  Each day of the color week we focused on a specific color, and each day we added a page to a color book that we created.  On each page students colored pictures of items that could be that specific color, we finished up the book on Friday.  To find other things that can be other specific colors; we cut out pictures from magazines and glued them onto a piece of construction paper.

Throughout the week during shared reading we also read color themed related books such as; Bear Sees Colors, White Rabbits’ Color Books, Seven Blind Mice, Pete the Cat, ect.  When students had free time they explored the books on their own.

This week is color week and we are having lots of fun with different colors!  We read the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Bill Martin Jr & Eric Carle.  We retold the story by creating paper bag puppets of the brown bear with the other animal characters in the story.  You can get the paper bag puppets from Mrs. Ricca’s Kindergarten.

During math workshop there were activities that help students our to read color words, number words, and help students with their number recognition.  Most of these activities come from the Moffatt Girls October No Prep packet.

Finally for our science experiment; students learned the word hypothesis and how to make a guess on what might happen as a result of an experiment.  We took drops of a couple of colors in whole milk.  Then we dipped Q-Tips in dish soap and then dipped the Q-Tips in the milk with the food coloring.  The dish soap pushed the colors away and turned the colors tie die.  The lesson plan can be found here.

The first day, a few of the kindergarten classes created a bar graph of their favorite color.  We used the bar graph to decide the most popular color.

Students also worked on a color page each day at centers that corresponded with the color of the day.  At the end of the week (tomorrow) students will take all of the pages and make them into a color book.

Today students found things in magazines, cut them out, and added them to the corresponding color poster.
