Product Description

Colors of the World is a 195 page download, set to emerge preschoolers (or intervention kindergartners) in the colors that are all around us. They will learn to identify colors, name objects of colors, sort colors, assign colors, mix colors, and more! This unit will engage and promote mastery of a foundational pre-k skill, while also addressing other skills and lessons.

Please note that you do not have to purchase or use the other units from this curriculum in order to implement this. Each unit is a stand alone unit. However, they have been planned in a sequential order that is appropriate for 3 and 4 year olds.

This Pencils & Play Learning Curriculum was designed by Michelle Vasilescu, a teacher turned homeschool mom. With insight and knowledge about both worlds, this was thought out and planned in a way that it could be beneficial to classroom and homeschool teachers. The name Pencils & Play Learning represents the combination of both hands-on activities and centers (learning through PLAY), and worksheets (PENCIL and paper work). This is primarily a hands-on curriculum, with majority of the program consisting of the children physically touching, moving, and doing things. Hands-on learning is imperative for a number of reasons. It helps children retain more information. They activate their senses and become engaged quicker. Children develop critical thinking skills when working on a hands-on activity. They are also better able to make connections between the activity and real-world experiences.

That being said, each day of instruction does have a connected worksheet and homework worksheet. If you do not assign homework, you can certainly use these sheets in other ways. Plus, you get additional supplemental worksheets for your students.
