This game helps to build student knowledge of more advanced color word vocabulary. It provides students with new words to try in their descriptions and in their writing. It comes with 25 different cards (both in color and b/w) and 26 large cards showing the new color words and colors. These 26 cards should be printed in color.
The colors included are
apricot, azure, beige, burnt sienna, burgundy, canary, cardinal, cerulean, charcoal, ebony, gamboge, indigo, jade, jet, lavender, lazuline, mahogany, olive, puce, raw umber, saffron, salmon, straw, teal, topaz, and turquoise.
Distribute a card to each student. Distribute a small handful of items for covering the spaces called (for example pieces of paper, math manipulatives, cereal, candy, etc.)
Display a card, call out its color, or both. (After the students have had a chance to practice the words, a word could be called out and the students challenged to find the named color in the classroom before the color card is revealed.) Use the color word in an appropriate sentence or have a student use it in a sentence. Students cover that color word. If 5 spaces are covered in a row, column, or an a diagonal, the student calls out “Bingo”. The student must read back the covered color words to practice using the words and to check their correctness.
A new game begins as long as time permits.
After its introduction this could be a fun indoor recess game.
