“Letter C is for Colors Week” Recap!

Hello all,

“Letter C is for Colors Week” was by far the Coolest week of the 2015-2016 school year yet!  Each day of the week, the students and teachers showed their “Letter C is for Colors Week” support by wearing Certain Colored Clothing!  Take a look below.


Dress up for color week


The colorful students also entered school each day with a Crazy amount of Letter C shares! Everything from Cookies, Cider, Coloring books, and Cows were sent in and shared!  There were tons of Letter C/Color books that came in as well!  The students spent both Tuesday and Wednesday morning working one on one with the teachers to complete their Letter C identification/fine motor activity sheets.  The teachers were so impressed with how easily the new students recognized the letter C and also how well the older students remembered all things “C” during their morning work!  In the afternoon on Tuesday and Wednesday, the students created the third letter list of the year!  Naturally, the letter C list was full of Creative answers!  As a whole group, the students took turns brainstorming and contributing words that begin with the letter C and also hunted around the classroom for letter C items!

How many C shares do you see?

Also on Wednesday afternoon, the students tried a taste of some freshly-pressed apple Cider!  A big PPA “Thank You” to the student photographed below who sent in two large jugs of apple cider that he and his family helped prepare!  The students were so excited to enjoy this sweet and thoughtful treat!  It sure was deliCious!  🙂




On Thursday morning, the students began their day with a reading of Ellen Stoll Walsh’s classic story, Mouse Paint.  In the story, three mischevious mice climb into jars of colored paint – a yellow jar, a red jar, and a blue jar.  After a while, the mice come out of the jars and begin playing and dancing around which leads to a big, drippy but colorful  mess! They quickly begin to notice that the colors seem to change before their very eyes!  The colors were blending together! Through their messy investigation, the mice (and the students) learned how the following colors mix together.






The students headed to the art easel to continue the color blending! Each student selected a few colors to paint with and mix! Here is how the project turned out!



In the afternoon on both Thursday (and Friday), the students participated in Spanish class where they practiced their Los Numeros (Numbers) vocabulary.  Speaking of Friday, it was Picture Day at PPA and the students arrived dressed to impress!  Each child posed in front of the camera for his/her individual portrait and also in a group class shot.  The school photograph proofs will be available for viewing in approximately two-three weeks.  Depending on how quickly the order forms are returned back to school, the student photo packages will possibly be ready for distribution before Thanksgiving!  Well, that is all for “Letter C is for Colors Week”; it sure was a Cool one!  We will see you next week for some more alphabet fun – it’s going to “D-lightful! 🙂 As always, thank you for reading and have a fun and safe weekend!
