This year I am trying to make my life easier in the classroom. My classes will be 90 minutes instead of the usual 63 so there is a challenge. When I teach colors I usually play a balloon game. Of course, the goal of the bigger kids is to pop the balloon so the game does not last long. So I came up with little colored squares that the kids can toss around and practice saying their colors without me worrying that a balloon is going to pop. I made these all from my stash. There are 11 colors that we practice. They are all closed but I have not finished slip stitching the darker ones. I finish them as I watch t.v.
