Every week I have been doing the song Los Colores with my pre-school group. This week our theme was transportation so I decided to add a little bit to the song with the colored cars. Previously I just had the words in Spanish on the board but I didn’t think the song was really sticking with them from week to week. I think they responded better to the cars and I am going to continue doing it with cars (or something of every color) every week!
I learned Los Colores when I used to nanny and go to playgroup so unfortunately I don’t have a source for it. It is set to the tune of Frère Jacques.
Red is Rojo
Green is Verde
Purple is Morado
Grey is Gris

Every six weeks or so I change our scavenger hunt. Lately I’ve been trying to do more out of the box things instead of just looking for a picture and crossing it off a list. Those are great sometimes and the kids love them but I wanted to incorporate more early literacy.
Our newest scavenger hunt is bilingual (English/Spanish) and helps us to learn and identify colors!
The idea is that the kids have to find something for every color in the rainbow and then draw a picture of it or write it in the circle of the corresponding color.
I have all of the downloads available for you to do it at your own library! The PDF is here and is recommended because the fonts and formatting will all stay the same. If you need an editable version you can use the Google drive link here.
