Farm week in preschool and kindergarten is ALWAYS a fun week! With any themes, it is always so much fun to integrate several subjects together, helping your students better understand (and enjoy) the material. This Farm and Color Emergent Reader is the perfect way to do just that. My oldest loved this book and I am sure your students will enjoy it too! Are you looking for more farm ideas, activities, and printables to do at home or in the classroom? If so click here.
Farm and Color Emergent Reader contains 11 pages of farm and color words. All you need to do is print and cut pages in half, and then you are ready to go! This book is also easy and straightforward to put together – kindergarteners should be able to independently do so.
First, students will read the sentence and then trace the color word. I feel like little kids think anything that involves markers is honestly the best activity ever, so we used markers for tracing.
Afterwards, they will color the picture according to the directions. This is great for encouraging students to pay attention to exactly what they are reading. It is so easy for students to rush through a book like this, without paying attention.
Farm and Color Emergent Reader can easily be placed in a literacy center or done as a class. Obviously, younger students will need some guidance. My three year old and I completed this book together. She had a blast with it, but obviously needed much more guidance than a kindergarten student would need. When she was tracing the color word, we talked about each letter and how to trace it. We literally did this for each letter. She was most successful when we did this.
She loved being able to color the various pictures and was so excited about making another farm book. However, she did not understand why she could not color the tractor purple (her favorite color).
