- For mathematics I choose the color blue because that color is the cover of my notebook and it is easier for me to identify it.
- For physical education I choose white because that color is my tennis shoes.
- For history I choose yellow because that color seems very representative for that matter.
- For geography I choose green because that color is the one that identifies the earth on maps.
- For French I choose the color orange because my dictionary is that color.

I allways use basic colours for my subjects, like blue for maths, red for english, or Green for chemistry. I prefer to keep it simple.

Honestly, I use some colors for all school subjects, not for each of them. I usually blue pens for writing normal text, red pens for the title, or take notes. I also use some highlighters, orange for the main points of chapters, green for the main points of sections, yellow for main points of paragraphs. And I keep color-coding consistency for all my books.

I use green as the science notebook color.Because science has the image of a plant.
And from the time I was an elementary school student,I have the image that Japanese is red or pink and math is blue.

I use the galaxy for Maths because the galaxy is a lot of colors mixed together. Like Maths, the definition of math in my head is also mixed. : >

Actually I don't use colour coding for each school subject. But when I was listening this presentation I decided to do a such coding. I bought coloured pencils, page markers, glue, sticky notes and folders. Now I done it. English is blue because my vocabulary is of the same colour. Maths is red because it's my favourite colour and Maths is my favourite subject. History is black because I don't like this subject.

I don't use a particular color for each subject. I use different colors for different categories, or different sections of each course. I use blue for normal writing, red for definitions, and green for titles. I don't use black pens because I don't like this color for writing.

I do not use colour coding for each school subject.Although I use pink for titels, red for rules, purple for examples and orange for interesting information.
I would choose yellow or green for English because these colours I associate with Great Britain.
