This month’s color theme has been purple. It might have been the toughest color to stretch so far, but I made it work! And I appreciate all the other librarian and preschool teacher blogs out there for giving me ideas.

Songs:

Purple-icious Song” and “If You Like the Color Purple” from Step by Step Childcare blog

For the “Purple-icious Song” I printed out pictures of the purple foods and a purple plate to use as visual aids. For “If You Like the Color Purple” I used transparent red and blue color viewers like these to show that they mix together to make purple.
