“We did centers. We did the fish game. We used blue and yellow to make green. The hardest part of painting was when I first started doing it cause I’ve never did that before. Because my mommy never thought I could paint. The only thing I’ve did else painting is coloring. It made a tons of green.” –Jelani

Today we read another book about color mixing! In the atelier, we used cyan/blue and yellow to mix different hues of green. Instead of just paint brushes, we also experimented with sponges, foam wedges and rollers to mix the paint.
We discussed and practiced strategies to spell words we don't know. We realized that there are commonly spelled words all around our classroom (like on the mailboxes) that can help us with our writing!
