Colors are a simple way to get your children “drawing/writing” with an easy theme that most have sufficient background knowledge to be successful. Children simply draw 4 items for each color. This flexible resource is perfect for giving children a chance to make choices and be creative. It's not just a circle or color the objects. Designed for Kindergarten and Pre-K .
Brainstorm and make a class anchor chart about each color. I usually do one color a day. Then students can make their own personal anchor charts or “I Can Do Colors” booklet with the provided templates. This is a great introduction to a “4 Square” Graphic Organizer Template.
All templates are provided in 3 different fonts to suit your style or need- a chunky font, a simple primary font, and a bubble font where children can color in the letters.
First are the anchor charts. Margins are as close to the edges as possible giving children maximum drawing space. Again all color words are in each font- take your pick!
Second are templates if you want to compile the pages into a booklet. Included are a choice of 5 covers. For the booklet, the left margin is larger giving you space to staple the pages without interfering with the drawing template.Children and parents love the booklet. More importantly it is an organized way to show growth. Most children improve tremendously from the first page to the last. Some even begin to label their drawings!
The following colors are included: red, blue, yellow, green, purple, orange, black, white, brown, pink, and gray (or grey).
Need to differentiate? Encourage writers/readers to add labels or sentences to their drawings.
