Color Review

Hi Teacher Friends!  We hope everyone had a great Labor Day holiday.  We hope your school year is well underway and  everything is going great.   We are on our second week of kindergarten and we are busy, busy, busy.  Here are a few things we have been learning about.

Most of our kinderkids know their colors when they come to us.  We do a review at the beginning of the year.  We focus on recognizing and reading all those color words.  The kinderkids also complete a homework assignment for each color.  They bring pictures of each color as we review.  Here are our circle maps for our color days from last week. 

We have also been making a few anchor charts to display in our classroom.  This one is  inspired by Mrs. Will's Kindergarten.  Be sure to check out her blog.  She has so-o-o many neat things to share.
After completing this anchor chart, I could hear the kids discussing their work at their tables.  They were complementing each other and checking to make sure their work met the guidelines.  I enjoy seeing them apply things we have learned in class.  :) 
Hope you are having a GREAT week at school.

  1. I love the idea of making a circle map! I am going to add that to my color review. We are doing 2 days for each color. I can hear Fran from Kindergarten Crayons voice singing (to the tune of the Muffin Man). Do you know the circle map, the circle map, the circle map. The one that helps you think.
