This is a great product for naming colors or reading color site words. Broken into a simple "I have, Who has" game, kids get to practice color naming and basic reading skills. This activity is great for your bilingual classroom or groups because the cards are in both English and Spanish.
How To Play:
- Cut out cards (laminate if you plan to play often)
- Pass out cards to students
- Select a student to start. That student reads his/her card and then the child who has the corresponding card stands up/raises his hand.
- Students continue in this manner until all cards are read
Note: There are five colors used in this activity. This is a great small group activity, where you can give each child a single color. This is great for centers, because kids can shuffle cards and play multiple times.
This activity comes with 20 cards in English and 20 cards in Spanish. If you'd like to use it as a whole class activity, you can pass out all the cards and play 'popcorn' style. Hand out all the cards and select a starting student. The child who stands up first, and identifies the correct color response, gets to go next. They are then 'out' until every student has gone. I find my kids like this activity, because it motivates them to "think fast".
You can also cut out the colored mittens and have each child find their mitten before or after you play the game.
