This is a matching/memory game to develop sight recognition of color vocabulary words. Students practice reading 12 common color words by matching the words to their colors.
Lay all of the cards out in rows, face down.
Players take turns flipping two cards at a time. If the word and color match, the player takes the match and gets another turn. If not, both cards are flipped back over and the next player takes his or her turn. The player with the most matches at the end of the game wins.
Use the recording sheet to practice writing your color words.
This file includes a set of 24 cards (12 colors and their matching words), vocabulary recording sheet, title page, and directions for play.
