happy international day of happiness!
along with our rainbow work, we also sorted rocks and did rolling work.
(this is what we call “playing school”)
sorting these rocks from biggest to smallest was quite tricky.
we rolled dice (and stacked them and lined them up and counted them…)
the wooden railroad tracks came out of storage! oh joy!
i made rootbeer playdough (regular playdough with root beer extract added). it looked a lot like poop. i admit i had fun tricking preschoolers…ask if you have one…
we did a rolling experiment with surprising results. the only thing we could find in the room that would roll with lifting the board one inch was a heavy wooden peg person. so surprising!
i was inspired (again) by deborah and used some of our foam blocks for a big body game.
the art roller got a work out!! paint was flying!
all in all, a really radical round of good fun.
well, you’ll have to just trust me on the satisfaction of this project…i hardly took photos.
we put three small puddles of paint on the paper (red, yellow, blue). then rolled the rollers to mix colors!
in one class we did it as a group and had four at a time walk around the table. in another class we did it individually throughout the morning.
very fun and we’ll use those rollers again!
before we did a rainbow project, we made rainbow bags.
we had bags with just the primary colors in them, then put combinations in other bags to make the secondary colors.
we passed them around the circle gently squishing them until the colors are blended!
then we moved them to the light table for some squishy writing/handprinting fun.
