Color FUN Centers

This week we wrapped up our color unit by doing lots of fun activities that reviewed all of the color words.  We also had our very first week of centers and the kids did great.  I think it really helped that we had so many wonderful parent volunteers helping us throughout the week.

Here’s a little {sneak} peek at all of things we did during center time . . .

We practiced reading our color words and kindergarten sight words and arranged them to create a complete sentence.  Then we wrote the sentence using our neatest handwriting.

We stamped our color words and wrote them neatly using the lines and spaces correctly.CIMG2129 CIMG2117

We practiced putting sets of numbers from 1-25 in order from least to greatest.CIMG2147CIMG2126

  We solved basic addition problems by adding sets of crayons together . . . somehow I didn’t get a single picture of this center!!!

We extended color patterns {AB, ABC, AAB, ABB}.CIMG2114

We listened to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Did You See? at the listening center and practiced spelling color words from the story using these cute little cards and letter tiles from Doodle Bugs {a great little kindergarten blog}.


We sorted crayons by color and graphed how many we had.CIMG2139CIMG2121

We also got to use the mini laptops to play some back to school games and look at our class blog.
