To go along with our color unit, I use these centers at the end of the day.
These are some of the color centers I am using in the classroom. I like this first center because it's simple, the kids love it, and it focuses on fine motor which many of my students need this early in the year. I have found that telling them they get to be "scientists" and sort the colors with the tweezers makes it so much more fun. All I did was printed some brown bear pictures and glued them into the corner of each construction paper square. Then I laminated the paper. I then just throw a bunch of pompoms and cut up pipe cleaners (I didn't have all the colors in pom poms) into a bin and the kids sort. They love it!
We have been working on cutting and the concept of "dots" of glue. In this center the students are cutting from magazines pictures of things they like and then glueing them into the right colors. This is only after a few minutes on day one, I'm always amazed by the finished product. (apartently someone likes Gymboree coupons).
These are our rainbow clouds we will be making today. We talked about the order of colors in the rainbow. (Sorry this is mine that has been folded in my files). We have 2 clouds we cut, staple, and stick some Kleenex inside to make them puffy. We then hang them from our clips in our classroom.
I will post some more color things we have done later today.
