This P book is great for a classroom, or at home! This book has 12 poems, each about different colors. It incorporates what the colors feel like and use real life items to bring the poems to life. This would be fun to do DR and give students different colors to reenact! They could share it in a showcase with other students and parents as well! #UCFLAE3414SP20

MaddyJ https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/hailstones-and... - This is a great resource to use for a lesson plan and has a wonderful extension activity as well! UDL principle 3.1 to activate or supply background knowledge and EL 4 to link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge can be done by asking students about the colors and giving examples of colors before reading the poems. 3y
DrSpalding Wouldn‘t this poetry anthology be a good one to use with the crayon books? Great post. (edited) 3y

Some of the things in this book can be offensive but that may be because it is outdated. I wouldn‘t use it in my classroom for this reason but other than that it would be an opportunity for learning about colors!

This poetry book is all about the colors on the spectrum! This book is a great opportunity to get children thinking about the world around them and relating colors to the things they see everyday. The illustrations really help depict the colors bring described. Each poem is centered around a particular color, and listed in each are possible things that are that color!
