My Many Colored Days dominated the second week of our Dr. Seuss month. This rhyming story is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to talk with children about their feelings.
Each day is described in terms of a particular color, which in turn is associated with specific emotions. Using a spectrum of vibrant colors and a variety of animals, this unique book covers a range of moods and emotions.
To incorporate two foundation domains into our theme, we partook in a little science experiment.
Using eye droppers, students placed watercolors onto coffee filters. While, doing so, we talked about how the different colors made us feel.
These two components accessed the science and social-emotional learning domains.
