Color Activities with The Day the Crayons Quit!

This book is IDEAL for teaching and reviewing color words with students.
If you are in Kindergarten I suggest a page a day with the color and watch the creativity and discussion BLOOM in your classroom!
I am a firm believer that using literature to engage students is so important and this story is a perfect example.  Scroll down and see the wide range of activities you can do with your class to encourage and widen the understanding of color.

It can be as simple as the 12 vocabulary cards for posting and the 12 vocabulary cards for coloring.
They are followed by a color me page that could be used for assessment.

And check out the differentiated pages for focusing on color and the colors in the story.

Students can write about color also OR write a letter to the crayons.
What would you tell them?
Check out your crayon box.  What does it look like?

Word work is also available in the form of ABC Order, a word search and making a list.

There is an opinion writing page, (not shown favorite color graph), book for class cover and differentiated final write pages.
I also thing the craft is simple and fun for posting in your classroom!
