Product Description
Inspired by Pete the Cat’s “Rockin’ In My School Shoes”, I designed this “color me” emergent reader, which will reinforce color words as well as the Dolch (he, she, his, her) pronouns.

It’s also a fun way for students to learn how to read and write their fellow classmates’ names, as they fill in the name of one of their new friends, to complete the first sentence on each page.

Remind them to use capital letters and end punctuation too! (More standards practiced! Woo hoo.)

There are 2 pages on a pattern to create a “just the right size” booklet.

Children color, trace and write the color words (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, white, black and gray/grey) then color the graphics accordingly.

I have my students trace and write the words with matching crayons or markers.

Besides the emergent reader booklet, I’ve also included a colorful set of pocket chart cards.

For an independent center, make an extra set, cut them in half and use as puzzles.

Print the medium size set as a poster. Hang it on the board so that students can refer to it while they’re working on their “color me” booklets.

You can also make another print of this, laminate both, trim and use for a Memory Match or “I Have; Who Has?” Color Word Game.

I’ve also included a smaller one (3 on a page) to give to kiddos as a bookmark to keep in their writing folders.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy practicing color words as they rock their school shoes.
