Teaching about colors is fun any time during the year! All children have some experience and level of understanding about color so it serves as a great anchor for young learners!
Another reason I love to start the year teaching about colors is because there are so many great books about colors and so many opportunities for building literacy using color knowledge as a scaffold! Here are some of my favorites (with affiliate links) and a couple of my favorite free-to-watch youtube videos.
I started working on these color units last year, but life got in the way and I didn't finish them. Well, I was determined to have them done so I could use them this year! Whew, I'm glad they are done now, 11 units for 11 different colors is a lot of work! Luckily, you can get them for your own use bundled for a limited time with a 50% off savings! Why? Because I want you to have a fun start to the school year too! And $11.00 for 11 colors makes it a sweet deal of $1.00 per color!
