T still doesn’t know all of his colors so we decided to have a fun tot-school month with colors. We did tons of fun tot activities. We did a lot of color matching and did some fun activities with the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr.

I found these Color Headers in the Target back to school clearance last month. I punched out the pieces and laid them on the floor for T to match up.
I used page 1 in our A Beka Arts & Crafts with Button Bear book.
Brown Bear Heads and Tails
First we read Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr. Then I printed out pages 13-15 this Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do You See Pack for T to match 2 piece puzzles together.
Brown Bear Mini Book
I printed out pages 2-4 of this Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do You See Pack for T to color.
Then I cut out the little pages and laid them on the floor out of order. As I read Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do Y ou See? by Bill Martin Jr. he lined them up in the correct order.
Then I stapled them all together. He loved having a little book that he made, and it was of a familiar story!
Sorting Pattern Blocks
I got out colored paper and let T sort the colored pattern blocks
onto the corresponding color.Sorting Colored Cards
I got out his Eric Carle Animal Alphabet Cards and started sorting them by color.Color Magnets
I found these magnets that could be sorted by shapes or colors at Target.
Colored Tooth Picks
I painted 5 sections of the styrofoam piece and let T stick the colored tooth picks in the corresponding colors.
I got some paint samples and cut apart the shades. T sorted the shades under the correct color.Paint Brush Color Matching File Folder Game
