Most of the time when I write about Mother Goose Time I tell about the activities we do during the course of a day, or even a week. Today, while we did quite a few activities, Bird Colors really stood out.
We were talking about what colors birds can be, and then we got out all these colored birds. I turned them over, then Little Guy picked one out and "tweeted" the name of the color. Then he "flew" around the room finding things that were the same color.
In this color collage you can really tell if we are in a school or homeschoolers LOL. The first color he drew was brown. I loved that he wanted to put it on the picture of Michael and I, although it was up a little high so I had to help him. Our furniture as well as a bookshelf are brown, but this was what he noticed first.
The Mother Goose Time box served as the colors for both yellow AND white. Books were easy targets. My pink (decade old) purse was easy to see since I leave it on the floor all the time like a normal person. Purple was the hardest. He tried to put it on a pink shirt (he sometimes get pink and purple, as well as black and brown, confused), but I asked him that was purple and he said "No, pink!"
Eventually he found the diaper box, which adds a lot of class and professionalism to my color collage.
When he was done matching all the colors I had him go find them all. This was a super fun activity and he really enjoyed it. He already knows his colors and found it pretty easy, but he got some reinforcement on the subject, and got to fly around like a bird.
