Today we read some awesome stories about crayons.
Our first book was:
Elizabeth Rusch (words); Chad Cameron (pictures)
We went on to do some fun rhymes about crayons. I gave each child a sheet of construction paper of a various colors. When their color was called out they waved their sheet of paper high in the air. Here are the rhymes below:
I have a crayon, I’ll give it to you.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of blue.
I have a crayon, a lovely little fellow.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of yellow.
I have a crayon, it’s here on my head.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of red.
I have a crayon, we can draw a circle.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of purple.
I have a crayon, what do I see?
Here is my crayon, an orange one for me.
I have a crayon, the best ever seen.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of green
