Learning the color wheel, paper kites, and jack-o-lanterns!

Children practiced learning the color of the rainbow with color wheel coloring activities. They were given blank circles and told to color them in with the appropriate colors. The first circle, children were asked to fill in each slice with the colors on the rainbow. It was a test to see their knowledge of the colors. The second circle was instructed, color by color, and they were able to learn the correct order of the color wheel. We read the book “Colors” and practiced reading the colors as well.

Afterward, they used their coloring skills to draw on a kite. They made colorful rainbow kites and flew them around the room. Since it’s October, they ended their art session by practicing their gluing skills by gluing the pieces of the jack-o-lantern into the correct places.
