This student version of Bill Martin, Jr’s book will
delight your students. Print the pages separately and have the children trace the dotted color word and then paint each page with watercolors to create a beautiful book that they will love to read and re-read again and again. Or, print the pages as a
collated book and students may color the pages. Get
creative and let them glue feathers to the duck or fuzzy fabric to the bear. They can even sponge paint the fish. The dog has a frame around it so they may paint in a background color leaving the dog white. I replaced the “goldfish” with an “orange” fish, but if you would rather keep the original text with the
“goldfish” then just use the last 2 pages in place of the 2 pages that include the orange fish.
In my class, we celebrate a color each week, so we do lots of red activities during "Red Week" and we culminate the week by
wearing red and eating strawberries. I have my students
complete one page each week as we celebrate that color. So,
during "Red Week" we paint the red bird and during "Blue Week" we paint the blue horse. If you plan to celebrate a color each week, you might be interested in our Color Week Notes, our Color Week Calendar Cards, our Tale of The Purple Mouse, and our Purple Mouse Puppet. We also have a Brown Bear
Puppet to help tell this story. All of these products can be found in our TPT store.
