I’m getting ready to do some work with my K kids on “Mouse Paint”…so what are your great ideas for this book? I’m going to do a big chunk with color mixing, retelling, and sequencing. Does anyone else have some more ideas? Is there a animated version of Mouse Paint? I like my K kids to be able to watch the story to help those who are more auditory/visual.
Also, all of my posts will now be posted right to my Kristen’s Kindergarten Facebook page, so be sure to “like” us so you can quickly catch up on posts. 🙂

I like using playdough for color mixing. It’s great for fine motor and works really well!!
I actually let my student mouse paint with their feet! They put each foot in a different color of paint and walked across banner paper one at a time with my help You have to hold each chlid’s hand because it is slippery at first. Then you have to wash a lot of feet! They loved it. The entire class used 1 long piece of banner paper. I put a piece of regular Manila paper down first so they could take their own paper home as well.
