This morning, I happened upon
three second graders reading Mix It Up...
(apologies for the audio...
you can hear that there was a lot of great reading going on around these girls.
Also...I did go back and show them the red and yellow experience.)
...and Press Here

All I needed to do was pick up Mix It Up and they were ready to go! This reading experience was just as magical. Expectant faces and eager hands led the way. I read the second half of the book without student assistance in the mixing and smudging. The two classes of second graders were in awe as they watched colors change. (I managed to be pretty slick with the page turns on the open and close the book commands).
After reading the book, the students went off to Mix It Up using the program Kid Pix. Check out there creativity:
