Woot!  Day two of my sneak peek into a local Reggio inspired preschool, Rosa Parks. The quality of classroom environment in this school is off the charts.

Today I am going to share a few of their color ideas.

Simple canvas boards with color collections.  I love all the texture.

A close up of the color collection.

Almost every classroom had a version of this color application.  Paint value chips were used to designate the place for each color family.
Love it!

Here is the same idea on a black shelving.

Here is a close-up of one where the paint chip was placed in the middle of the shelving unit. I love the inclusion of oil pastels and colored pencils.
Super cool.  Tree branch containers!

Each color has its own tree “cup.”  Uber cool.

And look at this!  A branch with spots for the paint dots.

Another brilliant thought!  This teacher used tin cans on magnetic metal!  The children can pull off the cans and take them to their table.  The metal sits on a easel.
Here is a light table with colored water.  So beautiful.

A painting center!  And look at the liquid watercolors waiting to be used!  Liquid watercolors are so vibrant and deep in color.
Tomorrow I will share their birthday traditions – so rich and wonderful!!!

Again, I am so grateful for the generosity and kindness of the teachers to allow photos and permission to post them on this blog.  Thank you from all of us Rosa Parks!
