Red Room Color Units at IPS

The Red Room at 76th Street creates a paint/collage masterpiece in honor of Orange Week.

While our Green Rooms (3s), Pre-K Rooms (4s), and Junior K (4s/5s) are concentrating on their author and book studies, the Red Rooms (2s) are hard at work learning about colors! The children in the Red Room spend six to seven weeks throughout February and March learning about primary and secondary colors. Each week, a different color (red, yellow, blue, green, orange, and purple) is highlighted, with the seventh week being the “favorite color week” for the children.

Throughout the designated color week, children are invited to dress in clothing of that color. The children participate in a “show and share,” where they are asked to bring in an item from home in the color of the week. Art projects, games, books, and even snacks often highlight the specific color that the class is studying.

Scroll down for some photo examples of the Red Rooms’ color units…

The Red Room will focus on learning shapes in the coming weeks as well. Cheers to our littlest students for all of their hard work!
