Rainbows in March

We have been learning about colors, color mixing and the spectrum of light this month.

One morning we experimented with mixing colored water. We had large glasses filled with water dyed in the primary colors. We first mixed yellow and blue. I wish I caught a picture of their faces when it turned green. They were shocked and amazed!

Another day we practiced our cutting skills by making our own rainbow mosaic. They also got to practice matching and categorizing, which are excellent pre-reading skills. The rainbow is now hanging in our school, so they can continue to work on it as the inspiration hits.

Valentines Party

I know its a little late, but I still wanted to post some action shots of the Valentines Party.

First we made some butter by putting cream and a marble and shaking it until all the little arms were exhausted.

Then we made heart shaped biscuits from scratch. I would have gotten more shots of us actually making them, but I had my hands full (and sticky!)

We made some handy valentine-holders........

for our awesome homemade valentines.

They loved being sneaky delivering them.

When we were all finished we sat down to a fancy snack, and sampled our delicious biscuits and butter.
