Since we have been back from Winter Break my first graders have been reviewing the color wheel. We made small drawings using only the primary colors.
I made an example to show the kids how you can mix together crayons, unlike marker, to get secondary colors. But I noticed some kids were reluctant to mix them. It's like they were worried they wouldn't like it. Or it would be messy.
Then there were the brave souls who let it all out! In fact they do all of their work in a heavy hand. They don't hold back. I have also never heard they say "I can't" or "I don't know what to draw."
I love them all!
