Aug22_Coloride_SM

Anna got a set of Coloride workbooks from her grandparents. The idea is kind of interesting and easily reproduced without spending a lot of money on these workbooks. Hers came with 6 colored clips and a set of cards (30 in each set). First she had to put clips of matching color on those colored bumps at the bottom of the set. Once she was done, she was ready to start the activity. This particular set was Things That Go Together. So, for example, she had to move a clip from the helicopter at the bottom of the page to the plane at the top of the page and clip it in the opposite direction. Once she solved the correspondence, she could turn the card and see colored suns in the matching frames from clips – that was a sign that she solved the problem correctly. Unfortunately, only this workbook was age appropriate for Anna – the color matching was way too easy for her, and the other two were in Russian. She did very well in solving the problems, and had no problems matching colored clips to their locations, but putting the clips on the cards proved very challenging for her. So it ended up to be more of an activity to practice fine motor skills which she sorely needs.
