Preschool Spanish Lesson 6: Los colores

by | Jan 25, 2017

Inside: A preschool lesson on the colors in Spanish for kids, through comprehensible stories, songs, and input.

Lesson 6 Goals: I can recognize some colors.

Target Structures: me gusta, no me gusta, te gusta (repeated from last week), los colores, pinta

Note: You may want to teach just four colors one week, or all at once. The online songs, books, etc. teach all the colors together, but doing activities with all the colors at once may be overwhelming at first.

Movement/brain breaks: Stretch with our movement words: levántate, siéntate, manos arriba, and manos abajo, corre and salta, Duck, Duck, Goose in Spanish, or ¡Salta, salta!

Lesson 6 Colors in Spanish Activities

Introduce the colors with the song to the tune of Frere Jacques.
(You may just want to teach the first four colors to begin.)

Activity 1

Play ¡Salta, salta! Scatter large cardstock circles on the floor. You can use whatever materials you have– paper, flexible plastic discs, etc. Just make sure you have lots! Call a color- ¡Salta en rojo!- and the students find the color and jump onto it. Start with 2-3 colors, and slowly add in more (over several weeks, perhaps).

Activity 3

Do a graph activity, similar to lesson 4. Let everyone vote a favorite color and graph their choices. Remember that you can get in a ton on input with me gusta this way: ¿Te gusta rojo, o amarillo, o verde? Te gusta el verde? ¡Muy bien! Niños, ¿a Emma le gusta rojo? No, a Emma le gusta verde.

Activity 2

Do some art! Give directions for what colors to use and when.

Activity 4

Read El patito que le gusta pintar. Let the students guess the colors as you tell the story, and stop to ask questions and check for understanding as needed.

 

Colors songs with lots of repetitions:

Sweet colors song that mentions animals, foods and objects (even el pollito!):

¿Qué color es la fresa? (Uses the phrases ¿Qué color es…?):

Peppa Pig episode in Spanish that mentions colors frequently:
