Product Description
This Pirates Color the Room activity is a great way to introduce write the room to your early learners who are struggling to form letters, read or write. Students are asked to find a card and color it to match on the recording sheet, testing their observation and coloring skills.

As a first grade teacher in a low socio-economic setting, I often had a very skewed classroom spectrum of students who could read, struggled with letter names, and others who were several reading levels ahead.

I needed an activity that would be fun and engaging for all learners yet not require many reading skills to complete so my centers would be independent. Creating Color the Room helped fill that need.

*************This product is part of a money saving bundle: Color the Room June/July Bundle*************

Reasons to Love Color the Room:

♥ Two recording sheet styles are included to allow for easy differentiation of stamina or fine motor abilities. Simply choose the larger scale 6 picture recording sheet for struggling learners or the 12 picture recording sheets for quick finishers and on-target students.

♥ Encourages students to have self-control by providing an engaging activity they can easily complete independently (a great precursor to launching centers or workstations)

♥ Use to introduce learning centers so that students can practice the procedure and not have to focus on the skill

♥ Builds oral language and preliteracy skills by offering brightly colored task cards connected to favorite stories and concepts that will get them talking and sharing as they color with their friends

♥ Practice fine motor skills and pencil grip when holding crayons or colored pencils to complete their assessment sheet

♥ Young artists will focus on details in the pictures to match the colors correctly which will can be connected to the skill of studying words or pictures in stories for comprehension

♥ Use as a standalone activity for early finishers, as a “filler” activity for substitutes or as a fun holiday activity during a class party


Included in This Color the Room Resource:

12 Colored Task Cards

3 Recording Sheets in 2 Styles for easy DIFFERENTIATION per topic: Choose from 6 or all 12 pictures for students to color based on their fine motor control or stamina. You may also choose to split the center into two parts and do 6 pictures one rotation or week and the remaining 6 task cards another week/rotation.

I Can Picture Direction Sheets for student to reference if they forget the center directions (eliminates all those “what are we doing” and “am I doing this right” questions)
