Have you seen the book “Pantone: Colors?”
It is seriously visually stunning. Each page is dedicated to one color and has a drawing of an object on one side and the other side shows different shades of that color.
It’s so awesome to look at and I like how it encourages even young children to start thinking like artists and seeing colors as a range of shades. However, at my house we like to actually read books as much as we like to look at them, and reciting lists of colors… well, it got old. So I decided to take it upon myself to give this book a little upgrade.
I found these cute color songs Here at Colors and Kindergarten (it’s a free pdf to download!)
I printed them eight to a page and cut out just the words of the poem- so I trimmed away the crayon and the border. For my purpose here that just took up too much space.
Then I taped the songs to the corresponding page in our Pantone:Colors book (a hefty piece of packing tape over the paper should keep it safe from little hands)… and we were good to go! Now the book has awesome pictures AND fun words! We read it all the time and I’m excited to see if it helps my boys learn their colors more quickly when they’re older.
