Have your kiddos seen the Dumbo movie with all of the brightly colored elephants “on parade”?
With that idea in mind, I designed this Color Activities
packet that's differentiated
for PK-1st grade
I've also included the UK "colours" and "grey"
I chose elephants
because I wanted to use the packet in March with my Dr. Seuss “Horton Hears A Who”
activities, as well as revisit some of these things when we study zoo animals
, after our field trip in June.
The packet includes
* 2 Seuss-quote posters
featuring zany elephants. Use them to introduce the matching writing prompts
* “Wild & Crazy Elephant Memory Match” game
, with a matching “color me” worksheet
* Pocket chart cards
for 12 colors
, with matching bookmark
My students keep theirs in their writing journals
* An emergent reader “Elephant Colors” booklet,
filled with lots of Dolch sight words
* Favorite color elephant graphing extension
, with matching “color me”
* A “Roll and Color”
dice game, with numbers 1-6 for PK children, plus a game sheet for numbers 1-12 with addition practice
and two dice for older kiddos.
* ”Colorful Elephants”
Memory Match game. Little ones can match elephant to elephant, while older students match elephant to color word
* 2 full-color number puzzles
(sequencing numbers from 1-10 for PK
kiddos, plus skip counting by 10s to 100
for older students.
* 2 “color me” black and white
* Color mixing
(primary to secondary colors) pocket chart cards
, with a matching black & white template for students to color.
I staple these together as a flip booklet
& have my students write the color words under the “equations”
, plus . . .
* A “mixing colors” elephant craftivity
My students absolutely LOVE mixing colors
with finger paints. They get so excited when a new color appears as if by “magic”.
The results are awesome and make an interesting bulletin board
. A caption could be: “Mixing It Up In (Kindergarten)”.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy these elephant-themed color activities
