Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Sunday July 31st is my birthday and to celebrate my Dad gave me money to buy some HeidiSongs DVDs and CDs for my classroom! I have the best Dad ever!!!!   How did or will you celebrate your birthday?
Remember, you aren't a year older, you are a year smarter!!!! Have a great weekend everyone! My husband is taking me and the kids to PF Changs tonight for dinner to celebrate! I love my family!!!

Color Mixing!

During the first 9 weeks we introduce colors to our Kindergarten students. At the end of the unit we teach color mixing. I LOVE this unit! It is so much fun! We start with the primary colors (red, yellow and blue) and we mix colors a variety of ways:
  • use food coloring and water - mix and put in an ice cube tray - as the colors melt, they mix
  • use water colors - they mix with paint on white construction paper
  • use those fizzy tablets
We also read books about colors - Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh,  A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni, Cat's Colors by Jane Cabrera, White Rabbit's Color Book by Alan Baker and, of course, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle.

A teacher at my school made a cute song to help the students remember color mixing and I made it into a file. You will need to print it on a Legal sheet of paper to get it all on one page.


Here are some great color idea websites:

A Freebie!

All my school stuff is at my school computer, except for this one thing I created at home. This is my first time to add a file from Scribd - hope it works! I used DJ Inkers artwork and fonts (don't you love DJ Inkers!)  You can leave me a message and I will email you if it doesn't work.  I plan to create a few more things before school starts! Follow me so you can add them to your personal collection! :)

 (NOTE: I am sorry, but I had to remove this freebie, because DJ Inkers changed their T.O.U and no longer allows you to post your creations) :(

Enjoy! Until next time! :)
