  1. We are doing this as a topic shortly and I was just wondering if anyone could suggest and books?
    My class absolutely love stories but I'm drawing a blank when trying to think of books related to this topic.

    Well, there's always Elmer. I don't particularly like Elmer but he's useful enough.

    The Black Book of Colours ( Menena Cottin) is a must. The entire book has mat tblack pages with black glossy pictures.....but then there are the words...they are fab for Reception....."Red is sour like unripe strawberries and as sweet as a watermelon. It hurts when he finds it on his scraped knee"
  6. Have just finished colour topic doing a colour per week. PM me and I'll send my plans(clean bill of health from big 'O'!
  7. Arnold Lobel 'The Great Blueness'. Eric Carle 'The Mixed Up Chameleon'.
  8. BTW as I finish with The GReat Blueness I get the kids to colour mix. I get paint charts from the DIY store and ask the kids what they think each colour is called eg I point to a bluey grey and the kids will say 'Blue' and I say it's actually called 'Sea Mist' etc. Then the kids mix their own colours and we make a fancy name for theirs. Good fun. Leave paint charts in the reading area.
