Did You Know? (Yellow Stop Signs, are you kidding me?):
In 1922, the American Association of State Highway Officials met to determine a standard design for stop signs, and that’s where they decided on the color—yellow. Wait, what? Yes, according to Business Insider, because they thought that yellow would grab drivers’ attention. They’d also considered red, but there was no dye available at the time that wouldn’t eventually fade. By 1954, however, sign makers had access to fade-resistant porcelain enamel, and could finally start making stop signs the red color we recognize today.

Peek In The Classroom:

Children listening to a student read. Even listening sparks interest in reading.


This girl is working with me on the Second Introduction Of Decimals in which we exchange equal quantities. The aim (s) are to introduce the child to the concept of the decimal system, To make the child familiar with the names and relative sizes of the categories, and to help the child with the difference in bulk between e.g. 6 units and 6 thousands.


These students are working on a color tablet work. You can see they are creating a pattern with the colors. Even more challenging the colors are different shades.


This boy is working on the Pink Tower and Brown Stairs but he made his own creation which is called an extension. Extensions are activities that are introduced after the initial presentation with a material, in order to encourage the child to re-visit the material and solidify the skills and/or concepts it’s designed to provide.
