Pinkalicious and the Pink Pumpkin

My dissertation is a study on how we gender young children in early childhood classrooms. A running theme throughout my study has been color, so when I came across the book Pinkalicious and the Pink Pumpkin I knew I had to use it in a lesson. We area learning about informational text so we made a Venn Diagram and compared a made up story (Pinkalicious) to an informational book (Pumpkin, Pumpkin). And of course we painted pink pumpkins. My boys cannot stand the color pink and they refer to it as a "girl" color all of the time so I wanted to see if I gave them the option of painting with bright pink paint and pink glitter or orange paint if they would change their minds about the color pink. As you can see only 3 boys chose orange and in the end their choice had nothing to do with not wanting pink. This was one day that everyone- girls and boys included- LOVED the color pink.

I found out about this book and got this idea from a post made by Frogs & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails. You can check out Jaime's post here.
