Kindies are getting a little dose of color theory, by learning primary and secondary colors!
So first we painted three 5×7 pieces of white paper, primary. (sorry no photos. Monitoring 30 kindies with paint takes all my attention)
Then mixers were assigned at each table to find out what color we got when we mixed different sets of primary colors. Then they painted their papers.
Once they were all dry they use a template I made of a mouse body and traced around it and cut it out for all their color swatch papers.
Next they positioned the primary colors according to my diagram and glued them down.
Then we read Mouse Paint. I would pause while reading so the kindies could use the information given in the book to place their secondary color swatches.
Finally they used pink paper to cut out their nice ears and used a permanent marker to make the features and tail.
I loved hearing them use their new vocabulary; “I’ve only got two secondary colors, I need orange.”
Great job kindies!
