Hey everyone! I am so excited to be linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It
! This week I used paint chips to create resources for the classroom. Guess what!? Paint chips are free at your local hardware store!
First, I selected wider paint chips to create color books. For this activity, students can find and cut pictures from magazines that match the colors on the paint chips. Then, you can add a cover (grab it HERE
) and attach to a binder ring. Students can complete one paint chip per day/week as they learn their colors.
Next, I selected paint chips with multiple shades to use for a color bulletin board. Grab the crayons for free HERE
The paint chips with the square cutouts are perfect for this next activity! I added strips with consonants and vowels behind each square. Students can then shift the letters to create multiple CVC words. This is great for kindergartners learning to spell! I created a recording sheet that you can grab HERE
For my last "Monday Made It" I created an interactive activity for students to learn about shares and practice their fine motor skills. I used my 1" hole punch to cut out one circle from each shade. Then, I glued the circles on the end of clothes pins. This activity is so easy to create and perfect for a center in a pre-school or kindergarten classroom.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Head over to the link up
to see what others have created this summer!
