for coming to Classroom Stories Night!
It was so nice to have everyone gather together for an evening of sharing, learning, and laughter.
We hope you enjoyed gaining a better understanding of what the children have been up to in the Brown Room for the past few weeks!
If you'd like to take a look through the presentation slides, they have been printed and are hanging in the classroom on our documentation wall.
As we mentioned on Thursday evening, the children have been experimenting with COLOR.
Today, we'd like to share some of these recent explorations with you. The children are gaining a stronger understanding of the properties of color when working with primary colors to create secondary colors and experimenting with the cause and effect of color mixing.
Here are some of the books we have read together in the classroom that have inspired our work and supported our understanding while expanding our existing knowledge of color!
Color Mixing with Watercolors
How many different GREENS can we create?
I put blue on yellow and it changed. - Lily
Blue to yellow makes green. Oh my! It made green. - Betsy
The children are also beginning to sort, organize, and categorize color hues into different collections or "families".
As their understanding of color variation continues to develop, children have chosen to give names to some of their different color findings and creations.
We hope to continue researching and collecting to add to our growing color collections!
You can find this documentation in our classroom studio.
