These differentiated pattern books are the perfect addition to any colour unit. Use them as a follow up to a guided reading lessons or as a part of a whole class writer's workshop. And what better way to teach colour words than to encourage students to write with them!
Each book follows a predictable pattern and can be differentiated to suit the needs and abilities of your students and class. For early writers, students can simply illustrate a picture to match the corresponding colour word. For more developed writers, students can use their emergent writing skills to fill in the predictable patterned text. All books include both the American and Canadian spellings of color/colour and gray/grey.
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Black, White, Brown, Gray / Grey, Pink
