Kindergarteners are starting to paint and learning about primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) and secondary colors (orange, green, and purple). They know that mixing two primary colors together makes a secondary color. Kindergarten is an important time to establish routines and become familiar with materials, so we spend some time learning about the tools needed for painting (like a paintbrush, water in a water container, a painting sponge for soaking up extra water, a palette for mixing colors, and paints). We also practice cleaning up safely and efficiently.
