Connecting With Literature: Colors Part Four
Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson
For this Connection to Literature I was hoping to give kids a chance to draw while engaging their whole body! We had to reach up high, and crouch down low, to get to all the areas of our "page". Just like Harold our paper was HUGE! They thought this was fun, and they were excited to try to create a purple picture like Harold did in the story. On top of that, they thought the book was very entertaining!
