These literacy centers get your little learners up and engaged in reading color words and following directions. An additional set of cards with UK/Canadian/Australian/NZ spellings is included. Each version has 5 sets of 11 Color/Colour the Room task cards and 2 recording pages per activity to provide instructional options. You may choose to address the 8 basic colors (red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, brown, and black) or the 8 basic colors plus pink, white, and gray/grey. Use the first 2 pages of cards for each activity to address the 8 basic colors. Use all 3 pages of cards for each activity to address all 11 colors included. Recording pages are included for each option.
Please review the materials carefully before printing to make sure you have selected the ones you need. There are cards and answer keys for American and UK/Canadian/Australian/NZ spellings. There is only one set of response pages that works for either option.
Print, laminate, and cut out the cards. Make copies of the recording page for the option you have selected.
Hang the cards in places all around the room. (You may place a container of crayons, markers, or colored pencils at each card location or allow learners to carry their own supplies to each card.) Give each student a clipboard and recording page. (If crayons/markers/colored pencils are not at each card station, remind learners to take their own as they complete the activity.) Learners search the room for the cards. When they find a card, they read the card and color the object the correct color on the recording sheet.
