Elmer

A great way to teach colour theory is with the children’s book Elmer. I read this delightful story to the Year 1/2s and then we discussed primary and secondary colors and tints and shades. Collaboratively, the students worked on the large scale Elmer, using objects to create texture and shape, while also working on their own miniature Elmers made from tissue paper squares. I know the kids are just as excited as I am to hang Elmer up in the corridor – enjoy!
