this is one of my favorite activities…we do it for all secondary colors. this month we honored orange.
after squeezing a bit of red and yellow paint in a baggie and then sending it around the circle for all to squeeze so we can make orange, we move to the project table.
when given a paper with a blob of yellow on one side and a blob of red on the other side,
children are invited to turn their paper orange!
i also like taking the opportunity to explore the math symbols + and =. at circle time we do simple math problems as a group and i love the look of pride when i label their replies as them “knowing how to do math!”
