o is for orange

oh, my kids were hopeful when i brought home a box of orange koolaid singles.  but no, it was for preschool.  to which eliza beamed at the older two.

we didn’t drink it, though!

i had it out on our project table but didn’t draw specific attention to it.  when we went to circle time, we discussed colors a bit and then colored a paper plate with different shades of orange.

we listened to raffi sing “apples and bananas” two times and had to color the WHOLE time he was singing.  (this song was perfect for O week as we remembered the letters that are vowels.)

then i asked if anyone had noticed anything else orange in the classroom that we might use.  it was fun to see the light bulbs go off as some called out and some ran over to get the kool aid.

we tasted it, smelled it, wrote with our finger in it when it was poured on a plate.
then we glued it on a circle-O shape of glue.

  1. I will have to remember this when we do orange next year. Great fun. Isn’t it funny when you buy items for school, bring them home, and the family gets all excited. Oh well, maybe next time I”ll treat them too:).
