Color My World!

Another week down and I am still wiped!  There is no kind of tired like teacher tired at the beginning of the year! { For sure!}  I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to showcase my week.
We focused on colors.  There are so many good books and ideas out there about colors.  It was hard to try to narrow down my activities.  These are what I ended up with.
We read 'Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?'
To retell the story using these adorable bear puppets. The littles loved them!  I got them from a fellow teacher in my building.  She thought they were originally from Miss Kindergarten.  Please let me know if this is not correct!
We also manipulated play-doh to cover  these brown bear mats.

The little ones each had an animal from the book to cover with tissue paper squares to make our own brown bear class book.  I love how these turned out!

'Dog's Colorful Day' was another story we read.  We practiced gluing dots on this dog.

The morning class had fewer dots to glue on since they are younger and less experienced.  :)
After reading 'Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes' the little learners worked on a cause and effect activity.
First we completed the activity on an actor chart as a whole group.
Then each little one had their own paper to complete.  They did awesome!
I love Labor Day weekend!  My Tigers begin their football season AND the Kansas City Irish Fest is this weekend.  Heaven  :)

I work part-time at Anthropologie, mostly because I have an addiction to that store.  :)  It is a great company.  If you are a teacher from now until September 7th you can get a 15% discount by showing your teacher ID. 
Link up your week with Doodle Bugs Teaching.
Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)
