Do you have any favorite colors? Most people do. Sometimes the clothes I decide to wear each day are chosen because of the mood I’m in.

While writing FEETSPEAK, my main character  Lucinda Amelia Ontarion, or Cinnamon, inspired me to Color-Code my chapters.

Her communication with others (and herself) by selecting a variety of colorful shoes helped me to use specific colors  for setting different moods and feelings in each of the chapters.

Adding color  words to your writing can change the mood and expression of your thoughts you want to share: happy, gloomy, joyful, scary, hot, cold….

 Here’s a chapter-by-chapter Activity Plan.

Activity Contents

For each of the chapters, I’ll list the page numbers of  elements that share the same color as its title.

Then, you can add more descriptive colors to each  of the  chapter’s elements  and make them more vivid.

Re-read them, see what you think, and let me know how it changed you perception of the story.

  • Activities Sequence
  • Color Palettes
  • Coloring Words
  • Chapters 1 ~ 11 Lists
  • Chapters 1 ~ 11  List Answers
  • Blank Color Page Template

You won’t need many Materials to complete this Activity. However, if you decide to print all of the pages, you will use a lot of colored ink.

Materials List

 In addition to a colored ink cartridge, you will need:

  • cardstock for front/back covers if you make a booklet
  • printing paper- white and/or colored
  • pencil and/or colors
  • 3-hole and/or single hole-punch, binding (coil, comb, O-ring, stapler) if you make a booklet

And, of course, I have a few suggestions….

Ideas & Suggestions

If you are collecting the Activities together in a notebook, use the covers as dividers or slip them in the pocket of a tabbed  divider.

You can double-side copy the Color Palettes pages as well as  the Coloring Words pages on cardstock and/or heavy printing paper.

Use heavy printing paper to double-side copy the Blank Color Page Template and color each one.

Or copy the Blank Color Page Template on colored printing paper.
