Orange, Anaranjado, Orange!

This week in Private Picassos’ class “Triangles, Circles, and Squares, Oh My!”  we discovered our last of the secondary colors, and focused on circles once again. After reading A Color Of His Own, by Leo Leoni we discovered what happened when we mixed red and yellow… orange! Then we took a break from painting and made a collage. After our hard work we had a special surprise…

When I had my sibling class up in Hudson Heights the students did a more independent version of the same color mixing lesson that ended in orange butterflies, except that in that class we used scissors to make symmetrical eyes. I did not emphasize the word symmetry with the two and three year olds, but in the sibling class it was our word of the day.
