First Grade Color Wheels

The first grade students painted and cut out their own color wheels. The secondary colors you see were created using only primary colors. The students were expected to be able to follow directions enough to create the 6 colors of the simple color wheel, cut out a tracer shape, trace it on all 6 colors, then cut out those 6 new shapes. As you can see by comparing the image above with the image below, some students have developed more of the fine motor skills required for cutting than others. I strongly encourage giving your children lots of opportunities to practice this important skill!
