Certain colors have a greater impact on our memory than others, so it′s important for your child to choose the right colors when making revision notes. Studies have shown that colors such as orange, red and yellow are more attention‐grabbing compared with colors such as grey or brown. This means that information written or highlighted in these colors have a higher chance of being remembered. But what colors should be used, and when? According to basic color theory, red and yellow stimulate the mind. Red draws attention to something that is important and is good for memory retrieval, while yellow highlights points that need to be remembered and stimulates mental activity. Blue has been proven to be good for boosting the ability to think creatively, while both blue and green have both been found to be calming and to increase concentration.
Using a monochromatic schemes allows you create a color scheme based on various shades and tints of one hue. Although it lacks color contrast, it often ends up looking very clean and polished. It also allows you to easily change the darkness and lightness of your colors. I like to use monochromatic color schemes for charts and graphs, but only when creating high contrast isn't necessary. However, monochromatic schemes don't tend to "pop," so if you're looking for a color scheme that's bright and attention grabbing, this one isn't your best bet.
Color mixing is always one of my favorite units! Learning colors is a huge aspect of preschool curriculum, and there are so many great books and resources on them. You can talk about colors just about anywhere you are! The idea of mixing two colors to form a new color is somewhat of a complex concept for preschoolers. While it may be easier to understand that red and white make pink, it′s just not as easy to remember that blue and red make purple. Whenever I do color mixing with young children, I try to make the process of learning one that is memorable. If we engage their senses in the process, then it becomes an even greater tool.
