Purplelicious Purple…

Yesterday (Wednesday) was purple day!  We learned more about mixing colors and that red and blue make purple.  We made purple hearts during arts and crafts time  We read “White Rabbit’s Color Book” by Alan Barker. This was an adorable book about a white rabbit who jumps into different colored bowls of paint and turns himself different colors.  We also used the color paddles to show how different colors can mix together to make a new color and looked at our sensory bottles that have different colors that mix together too.  And,  also read the book “Alphabet Rescue” by Audrey Wood which reviewed the alphabet.

I Love Purple

(to the tune Three Blind Mice)

I love purple, I love purple,

Yes I do, yes I do.

I love purple plums that grow on trees,

I love purple violets, so fancy.

I love purple butterflies that fly by me.

I love purple!

      Hi, these have been in our class for several years. I think they may ha come from Lakeshore Learning. But I have seen them in the gift shop of our local science center. Or you may want to try Amazon as well.
