Action Rhyme:  Crayons. Give each child paper red, green and blue crayons.

Put your Blue crayon in the air hold it high and leave it there.
Put your Blue crayon on your back
Hold your Blue crayon in your hand
Now everyone please stand.
Wave your Blue crayon at the door
Now please lay it on the floor.
Hold your Blue crayon and jump, jump, jump.
Hold your Blue crayon way, way up!

Have the children change to the red crayon, then green.

Book: The Crayon by Simon Rickerty

Felt Board:  I Have a Crayon. Felt shapes of different color crayons were handed out to the children. They would bring them up to the feltboard when their color was called.

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.

Traditional rhyme.

Book: Not Quite Black and White by Johnathan Yang

Craft: Crayon Rubbings. We had a lot of rubbing plates so the children used paperless crayons to color paper to bring out the image underneath.
