Having fun with a little blue and yellow in preschool

After reading the story, “Little Blue and Little Yellow” by Leo Lionni we did a little blue and yellow color mixing of our own…

We have been exploring balls and so we combined our reading with a little blue and yellow ball painting…

Each of the children started out by putting their paper in the box and then adding some blue and yellow paint on their paper…

Once each child added a little yellow and blue paint to their paper, I invited them to throw a few balls into the box…

It was fun watching the children as they worked together to get the balls moving in the box.  I generally had to get them started by showing them how to take turns making the box go up and down or side to side…

Some of the children really got the hang of this as we went along…

And in the end, we had some beautiful blue and yellow (with a little bit of green) artwork…

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
