Red, brown, blue, green, yellow, purple, gray, black, orange, etc. are some of the colors that we use regularly in our daily life.
‘Pass me the blue cup.’
‘Wear that pink dress. it suits you.’
‘Give him the yellow cap.’
Colors are a great way to address and differentiate among things.
Have you ever read a children’s book with no mention of colors?
If I were to recommend a book about colors, it will have to be ‘The day the crayons quit.’
The storyline is full of wit and humor. The illustrations are done by a child using crayons and will definitely hold your child’s interest. The book would be very enjoyable for children at any age. It’s amongst my favorite too. I have read it to kids countless times and they can never get enough of it. The book has a personal story of each and every crayon. From the exhausted red crayon to the happy green crayon to the squabbling yellow and orange crayons, the author has included humor in it which makes the reading enjoyable.
Since the names of color appear so frequently in books, we treat them as sight words. It is preferable that children can recall these words as soon as they look at them rather than trying to decode them.
I will be sharing sight words activity worksheets for the color orange, red, purple, brown, gray, black, blue, green, pink, and yellow.
Pumpkin, basketball, lollipop, orange, and carrot all have an orange color. Children can color the objects orange and then build the word ‘orange’ in the above activity worksheet.
