Happy teacher feedback
Catherine W says, “My students loved starting the year revising warm and cool colours, and showing off their brilliant colouring skills. On a hot afternoon, this is the kind of task that is easy for them to engage with, and we now have super colourful display boards!”
Nicole V says, “This was helpful and fun for my students to practise colour relationships on the colour wheel. It tied in nicely with our New Year unit.”
Jody V says, “My students really enjoyed this. A fun, relaxing way to engage them on the first day back after winter break.”
