The colors in this book are absolutely gorgeous! Your kindergarten and first grade students will absolutely love it. After you do the activity below, you can put the word search and the matching game at a center.
Activity Name: Feeling Blue?
Activity Description: In Chicken Wants a Nap, the illustrator uses a palette of warm and cool colors to
evoke emotion. What colors does she use when Chicken is having a bad day? What colors does she use when Chicken is having a good day?
What is your favorite color and how does it make you feel? Pick an emotion (happy, sad, tired, silly, mad) and one color that matches it and draw a picture.
