Guess The Hat? Sight Word Game and Colour Recognition

Guess The Hat? Sight Word Game and Colour Recognition

So I am very please to report that our snow is indeed melting and we can finally see patches of our grass. Today’s preschool theme for #PlayfulPreschool is HATS and I will be sharing with you a sight word game and colour recognition activity that is based off a science experiment we did recently for Tabitha at Meet Penny. You can see this science experiment here. Let’s walk.

If you are looking for a few sight word games and sight word activities, try this hat themed sight word card game for learning colours with your preschooler
My daughter is improving her reading skills with LOE Foundations A that uses the Ortham Gillingham approach. I also teach her a few sight words as well and so I decided why not learn the sight words for a few colours or at least allow her to have some exposure to them?

 

COLOURS SIGHT WORD GAME

As I said before, my primary aim with this game is to expose J to the sight words for the popular colours: red , yello and blue along with the secondary colours. She does not have to know them perfectly at this stage but I do want her to have some fun while unwillingly learning them.

The first thing that you want to do is to print the cards from the Hats Colour Sight Word Cards. Ideally you want to print them on cardstock for durability and then cut out your cards and them stack them.

GAMES TO PLAY

If you are looking for a few sight word games and sight word activities, try this hat themed sight word card game for learning colours with your preschooler

Game #1: Exposure and Matching

Lay 3 cards on a flat surface in front of your preschooler. Ask them to identify the colour on the hat. Once they have done this, draw their attention to the words at the bottom of the cards. Say, “This is the word red. The hat is red and this is the word red.”

Once you have done this with your cards, you can allow your preschooler to match the cards without labels to the cards that have labels.

 

Game #2: Match the Image to the Label

For this game, you need to separate the label from the hats. Start with 3 cards at first (or 2 if you need to). Place the labels down on a flat surface and see if your preschooler can place the correct image to the label.

 

Game #3: What Makes What?

Last week we did a colours science experiment where J had to test the mixtures of primary colours to see what secondary colours they made. I wanted to see how much she remembered and so we played the game of “What Makes What?”

For this game I laid the red hat as well as the blue hat beside each other and then asked her what colour hat they made. She grabbed the purple hat to show that red and blue make purple. Happy mama right here.

To get your 3 part cards, simply click the image below.I am sure that by tomorrow I will think of other games to play with these cards but for now, I am happy with the ones we came up with.
