Tiny Book of Colors

Learning the colors is one of the first skill sets achieved by little people.
Colors are everywhere which makes them so easy to teach. 
Freebie Alert! 
I have a variety of color activities in my store, but have decided to post one here as a
freebie for blog readers only!

Tiny Book of Colors
Here it is in my store, but the free pages are posted below!
This is a quick and easy way to introduce or review colors and color words. Plus each child will have a great take home read and review booklet to keep!

Included in this activity are the colors; red, yellow, blue, green, orange, purple, brown,
black, white, and pink.

Here are some example pages shown!

Run the three booklet pages, printing on the front side only. The ten little color examples can be run colored or grayscale. There are two sets to each sheet, but each child only gets one set of ten pictures for their booklet.

Pass the three pages out to each student. They are to fold each sheet in half on the short dotted line and again in half on the long dotted line. Place the three folded pages together with the title on the front and The End page last. The booklet then gets stapled or glued together on the left side.

The booklet color words maybe traced or colored during introduction or review.
Pass out the set of ten little pictures to each student.
They cut the ten pictures apart and glue them in the box on the correct color page. 
The little color boxes can be in color or black and white.There are links in the product description linked above to many other color activities and products!
 I have a special surprise in July, so be sure and Follow! I would love for you to get
some great freebies!

Creating Stories with Your Children

When my daughters were born
I wanted to get them excited about reading, writing and learning,
so that they would have a lifelong love of and desire to learn!
One of the ways we did this, was that my husband and I started reading with them from birth, plus we created simple Little Learner Books with their pictures to be shared over and over again!
This is a front cover of the color book.
It was a time when the instant pictures were popular so it was easy to put a book together.
Computers and phone cameras today, also make it easy peasy!
We did a variety of different topics; colors, numbers, shapes, letters, family, etc. anything to help make the learning process fun!
The books were not fancy, just pieces of cardstock that were stitched or
bound on the left side.
So for the color book they would find something of that color for each page, then we would talk about what they would say and want us to write down.
It wasn't long before they were "reading" these little stories and
sharing them with everyone!
This one was a favorite story!
Melody loved bunnies and had a large collection of stuffed rabbits! So as the story
progresses a new bunny was added until the very last page 11,
"Melody has too many bunnies!".
As I looked back on them over the years,
 I realize that they have many things I could have/should have done differently.
But....there isn't always enough time in the day to make it perfect,
 just enough to make it fun! 
Take the time with your children to create stories and memories that can be shared and
well loved with the passing of time.
