These pages are for working on the sight word “see” as well as color words.
You can copy the color pages so that each child gets a book of their own or give each child a different page to make a class book or two. They will write in the word “see” and the correct color word to match the animal. They will also need to color the animal to match the color word.
I also made cards with the pictures in color and the color word with the name of the animal, in the corresponding color. These cards can be used with a pocket chart to match the pictures and words. You can also play Mix-Up/Pair-Up or Mix and Match.
This is a Kagan Cooperative Learning game!
Give each child a card...either the picture or the word. (If you have an odd number of students, you will need to play) Then the students stand up. They hold the card in one hand and hold the other hand up to show they need a partner. When they pair up with another student they will say “Hello” to each other, trade cards, then say “Good-bye” and find a new partner. This is the “mix up” part. Keep trading cards until you call “STOP”. Then the students freeze and look at their card. When you say “GO” the students will try to find their match. When they find the student that matches them, they go sit together in a meeting spot designated by you. When all partners are in the meeting spot, call one partnership up at a time to show and share what they have.
When everyone is done sharing to the class, have all partners give each other a handshake and tell each other, “Thank you for working with me today!”
I also included word cards to use on the pocket chart for the predictable sentence, “I see a _____ _____ looking at me.”
I hope you and your students have fun with this!
