Imagining Colors!

For my first project of the year with Kindergarten and Second grade students, we read "Frederick", by Leo Lionni.  With the Kindergarten students, we began by discussing the colors of their summers.   Students then found their seats by identifying their names on the "thought bubbles" that I prepared.  They then filled in their bubbles with the colors that they pictured in their minds. 

Second grade students created the mice by using templates for the body and ear shapes, and then completing the eyes, tails, and arms and legs with scraps of the ear paper.  These were then displayed in the hallway together, as a lovely tribute to the end of summer!
