Learning to read color words with your students? In many classrooms, color words are added to sight word lists or high frequency lists for kids to practice and learn quickly because of how often they will encounter them. This fun and free Write the Room Monster Color Words activity makes learning color words exciting and hands-on!
*Pair with our Themed Writing Centers Activities for the Year!
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!
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 clip board to hold their recording sheet as they travel around the room.
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.
That’s it! A simple and fun color word activity that your kids will definitely love!
