How To Teach A Preschooler Colors
How to use this Valentine’s Day Color Sorting Activity with preschoolers:
- Match the keys to the right colors.
- Say that the key is red and that it is a key – Red Key.
These are the beginning stages of putting words together and pre-creating sentences. And even though they aren’t writing it yet, they are visually seeing the future approach to teaching English and learning to read.
Bonus: Provide your child with crayons or colored toys and match these with the locks, for an easy matching game to learn about colors. You can even place the keys in a sensory bin for a fun color seek and find game.
How To Teach A Kindergartener Colors
Your kindergartener will likely need a more advanced activity than just matching colors.
Here’s how to use this Valentine’s Day Color Sorting Activity with kindergarteners:
- Match the keys to the right colored locks.
- Have them write out the words on a sheet of paper. For example, if they match a red key to the color red, have them write Red Key.
If they need a little more help before they’re able to write the words all by themselves, you can write the words first and have them trace over it.
