First graders at Cumberland have been very busy learning and experimenting with colors. For the last 3 weeks they have been mixing Primary colors together to create new secondary colors, just like we read in the book Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh. You can watch a video that tells the story here.

The first week we mixed the 2 primaries together of yellow and red. We painted orange circles.
The second week we mixed the 2 primaries together of yellow and blue. We painted green squares.
Later in the year we will use these painted papers to make other art projects!
