For the month of September, we will be working on learning all about colors .
For some of you, this is the first month to Homeschool your little ones at home using our curriculums (or making your own).
Because homeschooling a toddler it is a first for most, I thought to share with you the plan and all of the activities to do this month. All with the hope to inspire you to continue each month creating lesson plans and activities for your little ones.
When it comes to creating a homeschool schedule, just know that will be a lot of adjustments to the schedule before you find one that works for you. Be flexible in your day you will find your groove and will have your day filled with lots of fun and learning opportunities.
When to start teaching colors
Although, what I have read says that you should introduce colors and shapes whenever it comes up naturally all through infancy, the rule of thumb is that 18 months is the acceptable age when children can developmentally grasp the idea of colors. What I have found is that most of the kids can benefit from being exposed to colors early on so when 18 months come around they grasp the colors a lot faster! First do primary colors then do the rest. So if you have a child younger than 18 months you can start exposing them providing activities for primary colors ( red, yellow, blue and green).
The Color Books We Will Use:
We will use each book for a full week as our circle time book to read and activities for that week.
- Good Night Gorilla
- I love this book, it has very little words and so many possibilities for language development, storytelling and observation, and if you look closely color learning!. It is the perfect book for little learners to start the homeschool year. We are doing a full week dedicated to Good night Gorilla)
- Dog’s Colorful Day
- My favorite color book! I used it for sensory class and we played with edible paint after to make the color spots on the dog. We will use this for an art project
- What Makes a Rainbow
- Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
- A classic that is fun to read because it’s an easy rhyme to remember and should be in everyone’s library. Use coloring pages of this book and color each animal. We will use this book for circle time one week and we will use the free printable for practicing our colors through different activities
