Children are fascinated with color. This lesson affords students the opportunity to connect a known color with its written name.
Collect recycled file folders or poster board for this lesson. Measure rectangles, approximately 3" x 6" in size. Mark lines using Crayola® Colored Pencils. Students will be cutting the rectangles using Crayola Scissors during the activity.
Bring children together in a large group and ask them what they know about colors. Use Crayola Dry Erase Markers to write student contributions on a classroom white board.
Provide students with the chance to connect color with everyday things in their lives, such as food. For example, "I ate yummy green peas for dinner last night." Continue to write students comments on the white board, highlighting the color names or writing the colors in a different color dry erase marker.
Organizing students into small groups, each with adult supervision, provide the groups with a selection of primary color crayons that have their wrappers on the crayons. Ask groups to select one crayon, identify its color, and find the written name for the color on the crayon wrapper. What letters do they recognize? Are there any consonant blends? What else do they recognize about the letters in the word? For example, as student might say, "I have the blue crayon. I see the blend 'bl' in the word blue. I also see two vowels, 'u' and 'e'.
Once the color discussion is finished, ask students to cut out file folder rectangles.
Students write the name of each color on one of their rectangles until they have a complete set. They may reference the written names on the crayons or refer to their comments posted on the classroom white board. Students should also write their names on the back side of their rectangles. Provide adult assistance as needed.
Using student-created cards, students match the color word with the color of their crayons. Expand the matching to items in the classroom, such as a red wall; or outside, such as green tree.
