SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES TO REINFORCE THE COLORS IN SPANISH:
Using Listening, Observation, Color Identification, Language and Singing
Listen to the introduction to this song on the CD. It gives the Spanish words for each of
the colors mentioned in the song.
Post a piece of construction paper at the front of the room, with the color you are
working on, written on it. For example: Rojo is Red written on red construction paper.
(You might do a different color each day. Review all colors at the end.)
Have children look around the room to find objects that are the same colors as those
mentioned in the song. For example, do they see any objects that are red?
Make a list on the blackboard of red items the children have discovered in the room.
(Do this for each color in the song, on a different day.)
Go through the list, having the children say, for instance: The crayon is rojo. Rojo is red.
(Do this for each color in the song, each on a different day.)
CREATIVE WRITING: Have the class create their own version of the song, which can be
sung using the karaoke track. Find different objects with the colors in the song, and
write your own 2 verses. They do not have to rhyme!
