This fun and free Write the Room Monster Color Words activity makes learning color words exciting and hands-on in Pre-K & Kindergarten!

Write the Room Monster Color Words Activity

Write the Room activities are always a huge hit in my class (we have several in our themed writing centers) – the kids are always engaged with them, and I love that they are learning!

After you print and laminate the 7 color monsters (this set comes with red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink) you will just need to print enough copies of the recording sheet for how many kids will be playing.

Then you are all prepped for your color words activity center!

Laminate the color monster cards and print the recording sheet for this fun color words activity.

How to Play Color Words Write the Room

This color words activity is so fun and versatile. Here are a couple of my favorite ways to play!

You can choose to post the cards around the room and let kids hunt for them while recording them on their paper as they find them (this is a traditional write the room). In this case, I recommend giving each student a clipboard to hold their recording sheet as they travel around the room.

In this color words activity, students pick a card, find its matching monster on their paper, color it the correct color and label it to match.

Or you could put them in a pocket chart or sensory bin in the writing center for kids to pull and record. They will pick a card, find its matching monster on their paper, color it the correct color, and label it to match.

Add the color monster cards to a sensory bin to level up the hands-on fun!

That’s it! A simple and fun color word activity that your kids will definitely love!

  1. I pinned this a while ago and never downloaded the monster color write the room. Can you please share the file?

    1. Hi Ashlee,

      You can access the file by clicking on the large, yellow download button at the very bottom of the post. Please let us know if you need any help! 🙂

  2. Good evening Alex,
    I love this activity my kids would really enjoy it.
    I am from Australia and we don’t spell colour the same. Is there any way you can edit the recording page to include the Australian spelling please. I don’t like to give the kids activities with the American spelling of colour on them.
    Thank you. I love your engaging and high quality resources, your page is an inspiration.

    1. Hi Kylie,

      We are so happy you love the activity! While we aren’t able to change each resource to alternative spelling at this time, if you reach out to us via the contact form at the top of the site, we can give you a new version of this specific activity for your students! Happy Teaching! 🙂
