Popcorn Writing Center Activity: Students pick a yellow piece of popcorn (character) and a white piece of popcorn (setting) and write a short story. Containers can sometimes be found for $1 at Target's dollar section
Color words/ The kids dump them out on a table or on the floor and sort the letters by color. and then they spell each color word using the correct colored letters. As an extension, my little ones love to then write the color words using the correct color of crayon.
