This is a good activity, although if students are not able to read the color words it becomes a little problematic. I colored the numbers in the correct color so students would know what to color the trees.
Yes, I can see where not knowing your color words could be a problem in completing this activity. My purpose in this activity was they could do 2 things:counting and reading. When we completed this activity in my room, I encouraged the children to use our "word wall" when trying to read or figure out the color word. By doing so those who I knew would have trouble completed the activity with little to no help. Thank you for your feedback!!
Hi! I am a Kindergarten teacher here in Texas. I have a question for you. Does your school use CSCOPE for curriculum? If so, how long? Our district just rolled it out for us to begin using it. I love it, but many of my colleagues are overwhelmed and do not like it at all. Did anyone on your faculty have the same problems? Can you tell me how your school overcame the issues? Of course these questions are assuming you do use it. I really appreciate any help you can give me.
We've been using CSCOPE for about 6 years now. We started with one subject, then added more subjects the following year. If was very overwhelming at first and it still is. You will find that there is a range from great lessons to not so great. As far as using it...we have to use it but then we don't. We don't have to use/teach every lesson...we just have to be sure we are teaching is covering the performance indicators. If we already have a lesson that we know works then we use it and we can supplement with CSCOPE. I think that as each year came, we grew more comfortable in using it. I hope I answered your questions and please feel free to email me again if you have anymore :) firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
