Based on the book "Dog's Colorful Day" by Emma Dodd, this lesson set offers a variety of options for text extensions. Try using the predictable text lesson with a small group of students during reading instruction--great for establishing concept of word in young readers. A mini-book and a couple of writing opportunities allow students the opportunity to create their own story about Dog's day and reread them. Practice one to one correspondence with the counting cards. Let preschool students explore colors with a color-matching card--use tongs to practice fine-motor skills too! A favorite color graph is always a nice way to engage students in data collection and interpretation.
This lesson includes:
• LEA lesson plan and material list
• Mini-book for students to complete and read
• Counting cards
• Color Matching template
• Favorite color graph
• 2 sentence completion activities for students to create their own “Dog” stories
