Ways to Use this Printable
Provide colored pencils, crayons or markers and ask the students to use the correct color to trace the color name and to draw pencils or color in the box.
This can be done independently, as a small group activity, morning start work or sent home for homework.
Use play dough (store bought or homemade in a variety of colors) to form the pencils for a fun, sensory activity in your play dough center!
Students can even use the play dough to form letters and “spell” the color name too!
If you have colorful mini erasers or other small manipulative, you could place them in the square that matches their color.
I like to use color sorter manipulatives like cars or bears.
