I love counting books. They are always fun to have. Plus I know that everyone works on counting throughout the year.
I wanted to add a fun twist to this fun fireworks counting book. I added color words for the fireworks. These are a simple way to work on number and colors at the same time.
This is a great book for around the 4th of July or any time there are fireworks to see.
Easy reader books are great for kids just starting out. They can help kids build their words and have a book that is their own.
Each page of the book has a number word and color they are working on. The only expectation is the zero page. Since there are no fireworks to see.
Each of the pages has a firework for kids to see with a number and what color they are. If kids don’t know the color you might want to color the fireworks in advance so they have a better chance of reading the color word.
How we used the Fireworks Themed Counting & Color Word Book
The first time through we underlines the color and the number we were working on. Then we colored the fireworks to match the sentences. I keep a copy of colored pencils by the book. The pencils have the color word on them to help kids match the correct color to the word.
After the book is all filled out we take time to go back and read it again. The second time I love making it hands on. I give them 10 clear glass gems.
As they read the book they cover the fireworks with the glass gems. It helps them work on fine motor and counting at the same time.
