Are you ready for this? This pack includes SUPER engaging reading and writing activities using the sheets included, as well as paint swatches that you can pick up from any home improvement store that sells paint.
Let me explain!
Give students one of the sheets included in this pack (see below for topics included). Students also need access to cut up paint colors. They then use the colors and the names of the colors to describe characters, settings, descriptive writing, symbolism, and feelings.
For example, one page included asks students to think about the characters in the book they are reading (can be a book they are reading alone, a guided reading book, or a story you are reading whole class). Students are then asked to write the names of the main characters and choose one color that best represents the character's personality or mood during the story. This is an amazingly powerful way for students to learn about symbolism...a high-order thinking activity for your kiddos!
Here are the pages included:
*Character changes- how mood changes throughout.
*Lesson survey using color.
*Main character summary (description above)
*Story mood- how the mood changes throughout
*Creating jazzy descriptions in our writing.
*How color can indicate emotions.
*Narrative writing with color.
I hope your kiddos enjoy!
