Teaching My Child Colors

I like being efficient.

I like working on multiple skills at the same time.

So to help the children learn about colors, I made books from construction paper.

I made the cover orange, and the inside pages an off white color.

On the cover I wrote “_____’s Color Book” and drew 3 balloons for them to color any way they wanted.

The next page I wrote “My favorite color is __________.”

I drew a flower in the middle of the page and put directions on the bottom of the page:

“Color the flower with your favorite color.”

I used the color that they selected to write in the name of their favorite color.

On each of the next pages in the book, I wrote the name on the top of one of the colors:

red
orange
yellow
green
blue
purple
pink
grey
black
white
brown

Each day, we review the pages we have done, and work on 1 or 2 new colors for the day.

These will remain as learning tools throughout the year.

They will be able to take them home, but also read them here during the day to review what they have learned and created.
