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.
- Recognize color words
- Exposure to shapes
- Listen to directions and follow them
Each file prints in color. Each file has one shape in a color. That color and shape is written around the shape. Student traces, colors, and writes.
Young Child's First Color Wheel
Simplistic color wheel, it's not even called a color wheel. The terms used are primary colors, secondary colors, cool and warm colors.
Student colors the circles as implied on the worksheet. Three files below.
Coloring and Writing a Color Name
There are two crayons on each printout. Cut the paper in half after printing or when you decide to use one.
A Use: One crayon can be used for a color theme week. The worksheet has the color names as a reminder to the child.
Colors listed: pink, red, purple, blue, green, yellow, brown black, white, orange.
Circle the Right Word
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.
