The Color Red

Recently I’ve decided to turn to a color of the week theme in order to teach my youngest daughter age two colors. The first color I chose was red because it felt fitting to go along with the letter Aa for (a red) apple. I made a simple red poster to print out and a matching activity to go along with it. I decided to stick them both into dry erase pockets that way I didn’t have to laminate them. By placing the matching worksheet in a dry erase pocket my daughters could use the worksheets several times throughout the week. When not in use I can keep them upon our learning wall to serve as a kid theme decorative art.

To add to a color of the week theme you can place red items in a jar or bucket to bring out throughout the week that kids can dig through and explore items that are red. You can play a fun game of I spy with the items. For example if you place a magnet with an apple on it in the bucket you could say I Spy something red that you can eat.

The magnet set above are what I use with my kids for our educational magnetic wall. We use them for learning beginning sounds and color descriptions. Counting bears are my daughters top favorite toys to play with for color recognition, sorting, and math skills.

Colors of the Month are Red and Green.

I’ve been attempting to pick two colors a month as the focus colors for my youngest daughter age two. I’ve been making a poster for each color and matching cards to go along with them. For the month of December I chose red and green because of Christmas.

I laminated the color posters and the cards for extra durability. My youngest enjoys matching the cards to the pictures on the posters. As she picks up a card I ask her which color poster it goes to red or green. Then she finds the correct picture spot. It makes for a simple activity in which a child is able to combine the concept of matching with color recognition. If you don’t have a laminator you can turn it into a fun cut and paste activity. In which the child is able to cut out the pictures working on their scissor skills and then glue the card to it’s matching spot on the color poster.

The laminator shown above is the specific one I use. As for the Learning Colors with Nana Hedgehog book and the counting bears they are both great tools to help with color exposure and color recognition.
