When asked about her favorite color, Isa referenced an item of clothing she was wearing at the time; a pair of pants that appeared to be not quite blue and not quite green, but maybe both?
Isa's favorite color served as the perfect opportunity to introduce a new color name to the children -
Teal looks like blue and green. - Dahlia
Dahlia, Graham, and Lily served as committee members for Isa's birthday. They prepared a special teal weaving and accompanying message to present to Isa at her celebration.
Using their teal palette, Graham, Dahlia, and Nadia painted a large easel paper with all of their variations of teal.
Isa was consulted when deciding which variation of teal matched the vision of her "favorite" color.
The selected favorite was then used to paint the frame for Isa's weaving!
The large teal easel painting was then cut into paper strips to use as weaving materials to create Isa's special gift.
Lily joined Dahlia and Graham to weave together and create a special message for Isa to include with her weaving.
I can make a message! Is this teal? - Dahlia

A Gift for Isa
What words should we include on the birthday message for Isa?
The Brown Room children are continuing to develop a stronger understanding of the visual projections "calendar" in the classroom.
Visual projections are a form of documentation and provide a way for the children to read and interpret the work that is taking place in the classroom. They serve as a way to reflect on work that has already taken place, anticipate what is upcoming, formulate "plans" for our days together, and strengthen our awareness of the passage of time throughout our school year.
During drop-off, we encourage you to take a moment to look at these together with your child!
