Get inviting literacy centers for your learners to practice reading color words. There are 80 clothespin clip cards with a color word and a choice of three pictures printed on each card. Learners read the word and clip a clothespin to the picture of that color object. You may use all the cards, select the cards that address specific color words for your lesson, or select the cards that best meet your learners’ needs. These cards are great for morning tubs, early finishers, literacy centers, and take home practice.
The following color words are addressed in this packet:
How colors print often varies on individual printers. The free preview has a printer test page included that has a sample of each color from the graphics used in the packet. You may download the preview and print that page to determine how the colors will print on your printer before purchasing the resource.
Print, laminate, and cut out the clothespin clip cards. You will need 80 clothespins if you use all the cards at once.
Learners read the color word and clip a clothespin on the correct picture or they can use dry erase markers to circle the correct picture. You may opt to make these cards self-checking by writing the answer on the back or marking a dot on the back at the correct spot. You may place the cards in a dollar store photo album and use dry erase markers to make a write-on/wipe-off activity.
These cards support the ELA Common Core Standards for Phonics and Word Recognition, Print Concepts, Conventions of Standard English, and Vocabulary Acquisition and Use.
The graphics used in this packet are from Educlips, Whimsy Clips, and My Cute Graphics.
