Color mixing in Kindergarten

My K students are learning about mixing primary colors to make secondary colors! We are using science as we discover the effects of mixing these primary colors to see what our new color will be. They are then applying these secondary colors to their projects by mixing them themselves.

Found object sculpture workshop

This past weekend I attended a workshop where we had to create literacy sculptures out of found objects.  You walk in, there is stuff everywhere, and we had to figure out how to put it together.  It is not easy!  In fact, it really stretches your "problem solving" muscle.  Here are two of the three sculptures I was able to put together.

From the Mouths of Babes.........

This was something that my husband found on the internet and it was so cute, I just had to share: "When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college - that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared back at me, incredulous, and said 'You mean they forgot?'" by Howard Ikemoto.
