For my K-2, after learning Numbers 1-10 last week, our next topic is about COLORS. They’re already been introduced to colors since K-1. My
duty is to review the proper pronunciation of each color and let them reply my question:
Teacher: What color is it?
Learner: It’s red!
- flash cards on COLORS
- flash cards of certain objects like tomatoes, sky, lemon, grass, carrot and zebra
- labels on COLORS
- Everybody Up starter CD
2. TPR (a sort of review too about Body Parts) : Sing “This is Me”
Recite the following incorporated with action:
This is my hand, this is my hand. These are my hands.
This is my foot, this is my foot. These are my feet.
Clap, clap. Stomp, stomp.
This is my eye. This is my eye. These are my eyes.
This is my ear. This is my ear. These are my ears.
Look, look. Listen, listen.
Then sing “This Is Me”. It’s available on Everybody Up 1 , Track # 40.
2. Sing: “How Many” to review the lesson about Numbers 1-10. It’s available on Everybody Up 1 , Track # ___.
1. Introduce colors: Red, Blue, Yellow, Green
Sing along: Red, Blue, Yellow, Green. It’s available on Everybody Up 1 , Track # 19.
2. Introduce another batch of colors: Orange, Pink, Purple, Brown. Let each students repeat after the T.
Sing along: Orange, Pink, Purple, Brown. It’s available on Everybody Up 1 , Track # 21.
Learning COLORS is much fun and easier using the two songs. Even my K-1 love to sing the COLOR songs and I tell you they memorize the song as well as identifying colors:)
3. Ask the group “What color is it?” while pointing a color. Prompt them to answer.
Post on board the flash cards of tomatoes, sky, lemon, grass, carrot and zebra. Then take one label of color like red. Let them spell it: r e d red! Ask them which object is red. Ask “is the grass red?” while pointing to the grass. Wait for them to reply “No!”. Then throw another question “Is the tomato red?”. When they answer “Yes!” put the label next to the tomato. Call out a student (I have a checklist on who already participated last time so I can monitor who’s yet to participate) and let him spell the word like “blue”. After spelling it, read the word for the child. Ask him which item is “blue”. That child is going to paste the label next to the item with the blue color. Give reward like 3 stars stamp on the child’s hand once he got the correct answer. Encourage the classmates to clap their hands to recognize the child’s job well done.
When every item has been labeled with the correct color, show them that they need to write on the blanks the COLORS. After making an example, ask one student after another to complete the task.
The worksheet for the day appears almost the same with the board work. Guide the group on what to do. You can also ask the Thai teacher to further explain in Thai.
