Learning Colors with Mother Goose
May 1st is Mother Goose Day and we thought it might be fun to incorporate some rhymes into your learning centers. Apples 4 the Teacher put together a great list of rhymes to help your preschoolers review their colors and color words! Here are a few ideas for incorporating them in your literacy center...
- Print the rhymes onto index cards, laminate, and use a binder ring to create a flip book. Providing them with dry erase crayons, invite your kiddos to circle all of the color words they recognize.
- Select nursery rhymes that focus on a specific color word, printing them onto index cards. Set out pieces of colored construction paper and invite your students to sort the rhymes based on color.
- Create nursery rhyme booklets. Invite students to find and use the appropriate color crayon to circle and/or color the the various color words.
