Colors and Letter Oo

The students brought many great and colorful items for "Show and Tell", take a look!

Logan's snack day was on "red day",  he treated us all to strawberries on this fun day!

Joseph and Jacob were very colorful in orange and blue for their "show and tell"!  Maybe some future Tim Tebow's in our class!

We read many great books thought taught us how to mix primary colors to create more secondary colors. Everyone thought this was so cool!  We had to give it a try!

The students painted each hand then rubbed their hands together to mix and create a new color.  Very fun!

As a class, everyone worked together to create a handprint rainbow.  We will display this in our class all school year.
