Teach color words through the use of pattern sentences and language development, which is crucial for young learners. A chart is provided to support ten shared writing lessons. For each color word there is a question and then a patterned sentence. During each shared writing lesson, one color word and sentence frame are developed in depth. Great for repetition, sentence structure, oral language development, English language development, reading, writing, color words, sight words, and print concepts. After the shared writing chart is developed with students, provide each child with the corresponding patterned sentence frame which they complete on their own, adding an illustration to match their idea. Student work may be displayed individually or compiled together to form a class book. Start a class book center and add each new color book to the basket. Students love to re-read their own work.
