Color Names

The worksheets on this page are all about color words or names. No where does the child have to rely on memory to know how to spell a color word, all of the words are present on the worksheets. The work here might help the child learn to recognize the color names. Side-themes are shapes and simply color theory.

Possible Objectives

  • Recognize color words
  • Exposure to shapes
  • Listen to directions and follow them

pdfColor Names
This is almost like a test and it might be better to use after kindergarten. The student is supposed to look at the color and circle the color word.

The inspiration for this file is that, once in a while, someone I know types a color word in the wrong color.
