All About Colors!

In the beginning of the year, I always start with teaching about the colors!  It is a great way to start on a familiar theme that everyone understands and is familiar with.  Along with practicing different color recognition and sorting skills, we are learning about reading through learning the color words.  I was able to make a Color Unit to use with my kids right when school starts!

My FAVORITE part of the Color Unit is the crayon craftivity that comes with it!  I like to teach a color a week, so each week we will add a different crayon to our crayon box!  I will staple the crayon boxes up on the bulletin board, and fill the little box as we go! 🙂


Since I teach a color a week, I wanted to have 5 different printables for each color.  I will use these for centers, homework, whole group practice, or for assessments!

I love centers that are hands on where their little fingers can move and manipulate the pieces.  For this center the kids match the picture with the correct color word.  I also made a different word mat that has the words printed in the actual color, for those that are having trouble reading.  🙂

My most FAVORITE activity to do with my students (well, one of them) is a Read the Room activity.  This is the same concept, but they are “coloring the room.”  You place the colored cards around the room, and they go on a hunt to find the pictures.  Once they find a picture card, they color their sheet the same color.

A basic skill is sorting colors.  I made little cards for you to practice sorting whole group or at a center.  

I am going to be hanging these color posters in the front of my room so the kids can see the color words daily!

The kids can use these color puzzles to practice arranging them in the correct order to spell the word.  They can use the color posters to spell the word, or follow the pattern of the crayon to spell the word.

I want to show you my little helper, Hercules, when I was taking pictures of the crayon craft….

    This is so great – one of the first units I do with my ESL students is colors too. They are mostly familiar with the vocabulary, so we use it as a chance to learn the routines and expectations in the room. I love your crayon box. And your pup too!
