Today is the 100th day of school and the second graders are loving mixing 100 colors for their chart. I allowed them the freedom to work on what shape they wanted and I did not get hung up on that their squares were all the same time. This lesson was great for conversations at the table. Students were asking a lot of questions to each other like "What is the name of that color?" "How did you make the color?" I love it when they talk about what they are doing.
