A wonderful read and excellent method for introducing color matching to your early learner.
Got a pizza box? Got shapes? Got colored paper? You’re ready!
Before we begin, here’s a quick back history…
Last week, the teacher hoarder in me retrieved 7 lovely pizza boxes that were headed into my school’s recycling bin. Immediately the gears in my head began to turn. I thought of my classrooms needs. Like most classrooms, the skill range in my class are a few beginner readers to children working on basic matching. I felt the need to create an activity that would meet both needs. But how was the real question.
In previous posts I’ve written on ShoeBox Tasks. I’ve mentioned my students enjoyment for inserting items very much like putting coins in a piggie bank. I also mentioned how the predetermined organization and structure of each activity designed in this manner appealed to them. Children enjoy inserting items into things, so this made perfect sense!
