Ready for School class -- Primary Colors

Sept. 22, 2011

Jasper and I are going to "Ready for School" class at Gibson library with Miss Lisa. 

This was week 2 of the 8 week program, and each class is 45 minutes long.  It's a free program and is great so far.

Here's the official blurb from the library website:  This program is designed for pre-kindergarten children. Conducted in a small group setting children and parent participate in stories, songs, games and hands-on materials which have been selected for specific learning concepts highlighted in the Nevada Pre-Kindergarten Standards.

This week was about primary colors.  Jasper colored with red, yellow and blue washable markers on a seahorse cut out of color diffusing paper, and then used a small spray bottle of water to blend the colors together.  Of course Jasper's favorite part was spraying the water.

We are excited that some of our friends taking the class with us.  Rachelle is coming with Savanna (and Flint), Kelsie is bringing Isaac (and Taylor) and Kim is bringing her twins Jocelyn and Blake.

After class I was looking at books to check out, and found Jasper in the "teen room" with the big headphones on going to town on the computer.  He was not even logged onto the computer or listening to anything but he was quite content being in the big kids room with the jumbo headphones on.
Can't wait until class next week. 

Here are the books we read in class:

Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni

Blue Goose by Nancy Tafuri
