The Rainbow Wheel Connection

White Rabbit's Color Book and Little Blue and Little Yellow at circle time.  Followed by a great discussion about primary colors, rainbows and the color wheel. The preschoolers then had the chance to use q-tips and paint to make their own pointillism color wheel.

This is one of those activities that went much differently in my head! My expectations were too high and many adjustments were made during the process. It's always a learning process for us ALL at preschool. 

People always attribute "patience" to preschool teachers, but being flexible is just as important. The ability to adjust, rearrange and sometimes move on.

The words of the song The Gambler come to mind:

You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run
-Kenny Rogers

The children enjoyed the process (despite their serious concentrated faces) and the results were beautiful.
