Sept. 6, 2019 Newsletter

Our theme this week was color mixing to make secondary colors. We first heard the book, “Little Yellow and Little Blue,” In the story, Little Yellow hugs Little Blue and they become green. We duplicated the action using little balls of yellow and blue play dough and mashed them together to get the new color. On the next day, the class created their own green monster after listening to the book, “Go Away Big Green Monster,” by Ed Emberley. I highly recommend checking this entertaining book out from the public library. On Thursday, the children mixed yellow and red paint to paint Gilbert Goldfish after the book was read to them. But the fun began when the class mixed red and yellow food coloring in vanilla pudding to make it orange. See photos below. Lastly, the class made purple shaving cream when red and blue paint was applied. “Purplelicious” is the perfect story for this activity.

The boys and girls did a great job of rotating small groups so we can have our first meeting of the Investigator Club. They were introduced to Dilly Gator, her brother J T, and to Auntie Lu. They heard the story about how the Investigator Club started with the building of the clubhouse (tree house.) See photo of the Investigators.
