Exploring Colours

IMG_6364

R was 15 months old at the time of this activity

We read, “Brown Bear, Brown Bear”.  R loved the book and had me and her aunt read it to her a number of times.

I thought it would be fun to make our own version of the book, so I had R do some painting.  I got her to paint a solid colour on one page, and once it dried, I cut shapes out of it using my Cricut machine. I hope to use our homemade book with R as she begins to say colour words and have her recall their names.

We also practiced a colour poem today. As I repeated the words to the poem, R and I practiced the actions.  She enjoyed doing the lake and sun actions.

Finally, I had made foam magnet shapes to compliment the colours poem.  R and I practiced pointing to the appropriate shapes/colours as I repeated the poem.  She also had fun putting the shapes on the fridge as I repeated the poem.  I would hand her the shapes in order and she would place them on the fridge.
