Each month, Mother Goose Time sends a color ribbon wand in the kit. January’s focus color is orange.
The wands are fun for the kids to wave around. It gets them using their gross motor skills as we play the color game.
They must find something around the room that is the same color as the wand. When they find it, they walk over to it, wave their wand, touch it with the ribbon and say the color. Each of the students take a turn to wave the wand.
I like to laminate the wands each month since we use them so much. The kids can play with them all month and I don’t have to worry about them tearing or getting damaged with food or water.
I love that the students are learning the colors in an interactive way. We also talk about the different shades of colors as we play this game. It might not look exactly like the color wand, but we know it is a variation of the same color.
If a student is having trouble finding an object that is the same color, the other students help out. We love our color wands.
