Colours: Activities for 3-5 Year Olds - 2nd Edition
Recognizing, identifying and being able to name colours are essential steps in the early education of all children. Colour knowledge is an important means of helping children to make comparisons and observe and explore their environment. The practical activities include fun ways of teaching colour recognition and identification, sorting and matching games, unusual art and craft ideas and suggestions for exploring colours in the environment. All of the play activities are designed to develop important preschool skills and a deeper understanding of the world and are linked to the Early Learning Goals of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, revised by the Department of Education for September 2012.
