I must be watching too much HGTV lately because I’ve started to think about color when I’m creating my charts. In the past, when I’ve sat down on a weekend to make my charts for the upcoming week, they usually all have the same color scheme (e.g., bold markers one week, pastels the next, Flip Chart markers the week after, etc.). However, this week I began thinking about using a different color scheme for each subject area. I’m contemplating keeping the same color scheme for each subject area for the rest of the year, but that seems a bit overboard. However, I realized that there’s something to be said about kids knowing that the blue-green charts are all writing-related, the being ones are all reading-related, etc. Thoughts?
