Mama loves brightly colored flowers and her little penguins too! Tulip, River Lily, Dandelion, Bluebell, Violet and Broccoli use red, orange, yellow, blue, purple and green to color in their snowy world and to paint a wonderful surprise for Mama.
TSVI Kara Hecht shares her favorite activities for the book, Penguins Love Colors by Sarah Aspinall.
Penguins Love Colors YouTube read aloud by Stories for Kids:
Everything is snowy white where the six little penguins live. But that changes when they paint a beautiful picture in the snow and ice with bright colors. Check out these colorful, fun activities for students with additional disabilities!
Recordable buttons (switches) from Amazon. Here is one recordable buttons link, there are many options.
After reading a book, I try to somehow tie the book/concepts into their active learning space for continued exploration and learning of the theme presented in the book.
Editor’s Note: I love Kara’s ideas above and want to expand these activities for students who are working on matching colors. Using the Bingo dobbers or finger paint, have the student color the Penguin Coloring Page. Only one color should be used for each penguin. When given a choice of 2 or 3 colors (can be a real object of the same color, a sheet of construction paper, etc.), ask the student to match the color to the penguin. Or, ask the student to press the recordable switch that matches the colored penguin.
