3 levels of colour-word matching mats
2) Fruits colour-word matching
Use pages 2 - 6 for emergent readers
3 levels of difficulty have been provided for differentiated learning (refer to pictures above!)
Start with the sheet your child is most successful with!
Prompt or ask your child to read the word before matching the corresponding coloured fruit
Encourage your child to comment “green pear”, “purple grapes” independently when picking up each fruit
Take out real fruits from your refrigerator to compare and talk about colours!
Use fruits to do fruit stamping to reinforce the concept of colours
If your child is not able to expressively label the colour yet, practice his receptive language first by getting him to point to e.g. “red fruit” or “fruit that is purple”
Embed more learning opportunities
Receptive language: Give me the banana, get me something that is red
Expressive language: What colour is the strawberry?
General knowledge: Name me other fruits that are green, how does an apple taste? An apple is crunchy!
