A fun way to teach color identification!
The children love to get messy experiencing a different painting technique for each color. One of the favorite painting activities from this book based on Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?
by Bill Martin, Jr. is bubble painting!
Each student page has a line for the children to write the color word. There is also a second set of pages that has the color words on the page with dotted letters for them to trace over. Great for the beginning of the year when children have difficulty copying words!
Included is an additional student book cover with the spelling "Colours Colours."
How do I use this book in my classroom?
Your students can create their own copy of this book! Included are all the reproducible blackline masters, full directions, and a color photo page showing the completed pages of the book.
As we study a color, the students make the corresponding page in their books. Included are the complete directions for all the art activities for the pages. Very little teacher time for prepping and no patterns or tracers to create!
There is at least one word on each page for the students to write. We sound the word out together as a class and then the children can copy it from the board or try sounding it out themselves.
If this is too hard for your children, use the pages that have the words in dotted letters for them to trace over!
When we are finished with the book, we use it at our reading station in place of the published books from our reading program. The children love using their own books and take great pride in them!
