Today was Purple Day! We wore all the purple we had. We brought purple surprises. One was a lizard. Our teacher brought a purple stretchie. We counted our purple clothes and tallied them. We read purple stories. We wrote our own purple story. We took pictures. We learned to spell purple. We laughed a lot. We love purple!

Dear Starfish,
Tallying is such a clever way to count lots of purple things! I would have liked to be in your class for Purple Day; I really like purple, too. I'm curious about your purple lizard!
Did you learn the word for purple in French?
Love, your friend,
Ms. Paterson

Hello Starfish,

I LOVED seeing this slideshow, but it made me really sad that I had to miss out on purple day. I don't think I've ever seen so much purple in one place!

Your slideshow made me smile here at work today! My favorite color is purple and getting my little one ready for school this morning in my favorite color was tons of fun! Thank you Starfish! What color are you going to do next??

Dear Ms. Paterson,
Violette is purple in French. One of us brought a stretchy purple plastic lizard. It was cool!

What an amazing group of young folks. I don't think I have ever seen so many different examples of purple. I also have never heard of a purple lizard. You are very wise to count your purple items with tally marks - this way purple does not get lost. Have a wonderful week. I can't wait for the next post.

I love the pictures of all the kids with the purple stretchie on their heads...especially the one of the young lady that is missing her two front teeth! What a great way to make learning so fun!!

Hi kids,
I am so happy that you did a purple day, because purple has always been my favorite color. How lucky you are to spend a day celebrating the most wonderful color ever.
