This is a digital download! The pages with the color and shape words are intended to be printed and cut. The teacher can then put the color word under the picture and choose to have them be black and white or written in their color. Better yet, put magnets or sticky velcro on them and it doubles as a bulletin board and activity wall or center.
I will take and upload of a picture of it set up on my wall soon.
The file includes 17 pages. This is decor for a pre-k - 2nd grade classroom for students to:
1. Learn basic colors
2. Recognize the words for the colors and the words for the shape. It comes with an option of the colors written in their color or in black and white.
3. Recognize Shapes and recognize how to "read" the name of the shape and match it. Each colored picture is done in a different shape, i.e. Red is all rectangles, orange is ovals....etc
I designed this because many pre-school - kindergarten students already know colors so there are options with this bulletin board or activity wall. We want students to be able to read the name of a color without always solely relying on it being "in color."
I have this up in my house as an activity my pre-schoolers can use, not just simply the names of the colors hanging on the wall. I laminated them and put velcro on the back so that it can be changed depending on if you're focusing on colors or shapes.
These pictures are........well, FUNKY! :) They can even be used for advanced students. There are 5 of them that have lines of symmetry, some are very modern and abstract. The pictures are meant to be placed in order of the rainbow and then followed with pink, brown, and black. Arranged this way, the page orientation is a pattern of portrait, landscape, portrait, landscape...etc.
The teacher could ask questions like:
1. Are there any lines of symmetry? If so, how many?
2. How many _(circles)_______ can you count?
3. Are there any patterns in the picture?
Those questions would obviously be more advanced, but the pictures do give more mental stimulation than the traditional color pictures we are used to seeing. I seek to find and make centers or wall decor that has multiple uses and gives the students something to look at or use that will make them wonder, ask questions, and imagine more. I love these color pictures and even love having them in my home for my kids to use!
