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.

Coloring and Writing a Color Name


pdfWhat Color is Your Crayon

There are two crayons on each printout. Cut the paper in half after printing or when you decide to use one.

Colors listed: pink, red, purple, blue, green, yellow, brown black, white, orange.

Circle the Right Word

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 shown in the small square that is in the upper right-hand corner of each section and circle the correct word.

The answers, from left to right are:

  • Top Row: orange; purple; red
  • Bottom Row: blue; pink; green.

The inspiration for this file is from a homeschool mom that I know on the internet who occasionally types a color word in the wrong color on purpose to confuse us.
