With this graphic organizer, inspired by the classic "bubble map", your students will enjoy practicing the writing and spelling of color words. Not only does this serve as an excellent sight word recognition activity, but it also provides your students with the opportunity to show their creative side and encourages them to identify different colors from their own personal experiences.
To complete this graphic organizer, students trace to write each color word (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple), and draw in each connecting bubble to illustrate something that is of that color. This activity may be used for either small or whole group instruction, or even both! For example, when I initially introduced this handout to my class during Morning Circle, we did the color "Red" together. I modeled tracing over the word "Red", and we brainstormed together various examples of items that we know to be or contain the color red; i.e., an apple, the stripes on the US flag, strawberries, and our classroom door. During our Morning Centers, my students proceeded to continue activity individually or in small groups, as moved on to different colors included on handout.
