Motivation/Introduction ~ First Day of Theme: 
Benchmark Skills:

Intro - Read My Crayons Talk, by Reeve Lindbergh.  Pull out a set of crayons and ask the children to talk about what each color reminds them of.  Make a word list for each color on the corresponding color of paper.

Color Walk:  Give each child a labeled colored paper square and have them walk around the room/yard/neighborhood and find that color.  When they find the color (or at a designated time), they trade color swatches with a friend and search for that color.  For ease, give as many colors as there are children (using colors like light green, light blue, dark green, dark blue, silver, gold for more color options or to enhance the game for children who already know most of their colors.

 
  Lessons (one main lesson a day which can be broken into parts as needed throughout the day):

1. Story:  I like/use the alphabet songs in the book in "Sing and Read" Alphabet Little Books by Frog Street Press (Use any /k/ - hard Cc sound - word books).
Find all of the /k/ (hard c sound) words in the book.  Show how to make the Cc sign.

There are many benchmarks that will be taught nearly every day, like "Demonstrates willingness to try new things" or "Shows enjoyment of books and stories and discussion of them".  Throughout the range of activities offered here, there will be a focus on one or two, although there are usually many covered in one simple activity.  Repetition is the key with learning - especially in early childhood.  However, even though you may do the same basic activity, it can be adapted to your child's level, interests, and theme..
