Here are some red day activities for preschool that are hands-on learning exercises to teach the color RED.
If you would rather watch how I put together our red day activities, you can do it HERE.
RED Preschool Journal Prompts
Arrival time can be hectic in a pre-k classroom! That's why I started morning journals using preschool journal prompts with my pre-k students. It’s a way for everyone to get into the groove of the day while having time to greet and talk with one another as they work on meaningful pre-writing skills activities.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear is the perfect story to add to the red day activities for preschool. Children always enjoy the beloved story and with storytelling props children will stay engaged during the read aloud.
Recap the story will a color pocket chart story that the children will be able to read on their own.
RED Choice Time Activities
RED Collage with red objects.
Find red clear objects to place on the light table so that children can experiment with the color red.
RED painting. Provide children with different shades of red to create a red painting with.
Turn those red paintings into a redbird art project. These redbirds can be turned into a page of a child made brown bear, brown bear color book.
Small Group Activities
My red-letter collage is a great way to observe children's knowledge of letters. Can they identify some or all of the letters in their name.
RED fingerprint counting is another way to be able to observe children counting and identify numbers.
To finish off the week have children color their own My Color Red Book that they can take home and read to a family member.
