Color Days (Part 1)

At the beginning of the year, we celebrate Color Days and Shape Days to help the kids learn their colors and shapes. These are some of the activities we did for our first week of colors...

We read Clifford Goes to Dog School & Clifford's First School Day. Then we made a Clifford puppet.
We read Not Norman: A Goldfish Story. Then we made handprint goldfish and we sorted Goldfish Crackers (ones with faces and ones without faces).
We read the story Duck & Goose. Then we made a yellow paper plate duck craft. Later, we sang Five Little Ducks and used our ducks as props.
We read Franklin Goes to School and created a paper plate Franklin craft.
Later, we read Froggy Goes to School and made these cute frog headbands.
We read "The Monster at the End of this Book" and watched Sesame Street. Then we sponge painted a blue paper plate cookie monster. I didn't realize the book was about Grover until after I prepped this craft, so if you read this book, you may want to add a pink nose and make it a Grover craft!


  1. Great ideas! We started school last Thursday. Next week, the first full week, we are doing family/friends/self, and the NEXT week after that we will be doing colors. So thank you for the ideas!

  5. I love, love all your ideas! They are creative and fun for our students and even the teacher. Thank you for sharing your ideas. I use them all the time!

  6. Finally, pay your awful credit auto advance on time. On the off chance that you can keep up this advance with convenient installments consistently, different moneylenders won't be reluctant to give you another advance as you now have great credit.

  7. When you have some data, you're in a position to arrange with certainty. You could keep on calling different banks to think about their auto advance loan costs and conditions or you can approach an auto dealership straightforwardly. check cashing
