Learning colors is an essential skill to cover in kindergarten. Colors is a great, simple topic to start the school year with to help students feel successful and knowledgeable. The materials in this resource cover the following colors: black, blue, brown, gray, green, orange, pink, purple, red, white, and yellow.

Take a look at the preview to see some photos of your colors unit resource!

Your download is separated into four sections.

Teaching About Colors:

Color Posters – half page posters that feature the color word and an animal matching the color

Color Pocket Chart Cards – a heading and picture cards for students to sort (these can also be used as full page posters)

Mini-Books – each color has a mini-book for students to complete; these are printed on one page per color and features six images that correlate with each color – students can color the pictures and fill in the missing color word on each page

Learning Colors Worksheets: for each color, there is a separate page for each of the following worksheets

Circle of Ideas – students draw pictures (or cut out pictures from magazines) to put in the circle for the focus word and practice tracing the color word

Paint Palette Picture Sort – students will cut, sort, and paste 6 of 8 pictures for each color

Color It – students will identify and color (or circle) pictures that match the focus color

Finish the sentence – these pages are similar to my Simple Sentences Sight Word Practice pages; students will fill in the missing color word from each sentence, color the picture, and rewrite the sentence

Centers for Teaching Colors:

Envelope and Stamps – students will sort and match envelopes with color words to stamps with pictures on them

Memory – students will match paint cans, brushes, and color words (four ways to play)

Color Word Puzzles – students will put a crayon together and spell the color word

Write on, Wipe Off Color Words – students will fill in the word boxes with the color words (with dry erase markers); there is a matching recording sheet

Colors Interactive Notebook:

The interactive notebook covers all the colors together. Students will make a cup of colored paintbrushes, complete a word search, make a 12-page book, play a spin and graph activity, and match pictures with color words

Detailed instructions are included on how to make the mini-books and the interactive notebook.

    This was a great resource to use to help supplement my instruction on color recognition goals. My students loved it when we used an activity from this bundle.
