Free Color Labels

colour matching games

I made these color coded labels for my five year old son. He already knows his colors but I wanted to expose him to some sight words so I thought - Why not use colors? We turn it into a matching game, I lay out different objects on the table and he uses the label to tag each item with the name if its color. He is able to do it not because he can read the words but because each label comes in the color that it represents. But I think it's a good idea to expose children to words in context, even if they can't read them as yet. 

If you would like to try them out with your students, it's available as a free download pdf file from my TeacherspayTeachers Store. Click right here to download it for twelve colors!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
