Orange You Glad It Was Orange Day? Grab our FREE "Orange" song and See the SNOW!

We had so much fun making fresh squeezed orange juice from organic oranges, learning the song about how to spell orange, and wearing orange!

First, let me tell you that I'm up at Mammoth Mountain where it snowed last night!  How can it snow when Starbuck's Gingerbread and Peppermint lattes have not even come out yet?

Last week, we celebrated the color orange.

We all wore orange on Friday:

That's my wonderful sub who had a
volunteer text this photo to me.

We made fresh squeezed orange juice:

Each child received 1/2 of an organic orange and they each got to juice it and sample fresh squeezed orange juice with all of their five senses!
We looked at the oranges with our sense of sight.
They looked and felt different on the inside than
they did on the outside.

We listened to the juice being squeezed out of the orange.
Smelling the juiced orange.
We tasted the sweet juice!

We sang the "Orange Song": 

and completed a mini book about the song so they can sing it at home with their families:

To the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell"

O-R-A-N-G-E,  O-R-A-N-G-E,
Oh, I know how to spell orange,

A Jack-o-lantern's orange,
And it can look spooky,
Oh, I know how to spell orange,

You can also make a thinking map 

about things that are orange:

You might like our Color Day calendar cards.

Or our Color Day notes to parents in both English and Spanish.

The set comes with a special book for individual students to create too.

And our Beginning of the Year Bundle is a great value!

Just want to show you where I was this morning.
I took a fly casting class on Horseshoe pond up in the Mammoth Mountain area in California.
Simply stunning scenery!

See you all tomorrow!

  1. Hi, That is a circle map not a double bubble map. A double bubble map compares two things. It takes the place of a venn diagram.
