Re: Color Lessons (PPT/Games)

If anyone is stuck for ideas, I have a couple I have used many times.

First, four corners with red, green, blue and yellow flash cards. To determine which colour the students run to, I use a dice that has coloured sides. The other two sides are white (sit down) and pink (die/go to sleep). I've also used this game outside of corners and just got kids touching objects or pictures on the wall matching the colours.

Second is fruit salad, but with primary colours. This is a good way for the younger kids to learn their primary and secondary colours. Each student is assigned a primary colour and one kid is in the middle. When their colour is called, they must change seats and avoid being the middle kid. If a secondary colour is called, lets say 'orange', then yellow and red kids must change seats. For all kids to change seats, I used 'rainbow'. I've even had 5th and 6th grade students enjoy this game during camps ;)

I introduced the colors with this song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjtER4nfqTw

On the first slide of the PPT, all the colors from the song are there in order. After listening once, sing the song slowly with the students and point to each color as they say them. When you sing the song with the video, make sure you keep the PPT slide up.

The rest of the PPT has a review of blue, yellow, red, green, and orange. There's a "How many?" activity where I say, "How many [color] [object] are there?" and the students raise the correct number of fingers/say the number out loud.

Finally, there's a coloring page that I did together with the whole class. I decided ahead of time what colors the picture would be and told them how to color it. It's easiest to just assign one color to each object (color the entire flower red, stem and leaves too). The students will all go at different paces, so you can tell them the colors of three or so objects at once.

Here are some simple resources for a color lesson. I also incorporated shapes and some simple objects that my kids already know. Good for a quick review or a short listening activity.

1- Shapes Color Review Game -- Play in pairs. Each person has a different colored pencil. The teacher calls out one of the shapes, and the first student to circle that shape can keep it. In the end, the winner has the most shapes circled. In case of a tie, I make my students play rock paper scissors. For this activity, I was practicing "light" and "dark" colors, but you can change the colors of each shape to suit your class's vocabulary.

2- Color Shapes Bingo-- Got this idea from someone else on waygook, sorry I forget who! Directions are in the document. Basically, students color in each shape, then you call out a matching color and shape ("Red heart") If they colored the heart red, they can mark that space, and three or four in a row wins.

3-  Whiteboard Spelling Game -- Give each student or pair/group a white board. They have to write the missing letter(s) (Round 1: one missing letter for one point, Round 2: two missing letters for two points, Round 3: they write the whole word for five points). I gave a bonus point to students who could write the answer before I showed them the hint.

This is a very nice and upbeat song about colors.

I have used it from Kindergarten up to 6th Grade and the children LOVE it! Don't forget about sparklebox.com for very useful materials.

I don't know if you still need to know this or not but you have to pay a subscription fee to access materials and downloads on this site. You can find that in the "profile" tab on the left side of the page.
