Mouse Paint

This is another little mouse book by Ellen Stoll Walsh.  In this story the mice play in paint and use it to escape from a cat.

I use this book to introduce/review color words at the beginning of the year.

Here are some of our activities to go with the book. Click on each activity to grab your own copy.

Here is a poem we put in our Poem and Song books. We highlight color words.

This activity practices color words.

We practice patterns with this activity.

We read and spell color words with this word search.

My DOLLAR SALE at Teachers Pay Teachers runs through tomorrow.  Stop by and check out my game to accompany this book and others!

Check back tomorrow for activities to go with Mouse Shapes.
