Every week we have a letter and a color that we focus on. For the letter of the week poem, the students practice finding the letter and illustrating a picture that matches the poem. The color of the week is very similar. They illustrate something for that color. Its a great way to work on them adding details to their illustrations. I always tell my students they need to use as many different colors in their picture as their age. (If they are 5 they should use 5 colors in their picture). This serves as a wonderful tool at conferences and at the end of the year to show progress.
