Teaching Colors: Getting Ready for the New School Year

We'll, I've been out of school for 2 weeks now, and I am finally getting rested up (a little). :-)  But I have been working on some stuff for the beginning of the school year because we are finally going on our dream vacation!  We're leaving in a little over a week for Disney!!!! (OK, I would rather go to Hawaii, but I was outvoted.)  Anyhoo, I have been working on stuff for the first 2 weeks of school.  I teach first grade, and I love to do a review of colors and fun activities for the 2 weeks.  One of my favorite daily activities to do with my kiddos is poetry.  So, I have put together a FREE packet of color poems to go along with my Color Unit.  It contains 12 posters (8 1/2"x11"), plus 12 pages of cut-apart poems for students to use in their poetry notebooks/journals.  Click here to download this free product.

     I have also made a 145-page packet of activities and printables to go along with the unit.  You can find it at Color Unit: Literacy, Math & Art Activities.  
Here are a few pictures of activities included in the packet.

Directions are included for making an edible color wheel.
Directions for making a rainbow heart.
Plus, there are directions for making a Clifford for Red Day.
The packet has 145 pages of everything you need for your color study/review.

I have also been working materials for my Eric Carle author study that we do after our color unit.  I made a packet of activities and printables to supplement the story, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?  I have also posted a FREEBIE student book that is perfect for reviewing color words and retelling the classic story.  Here is a link to the student book.
