Preschool Spanish Lesson 6: Los colores
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!
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).
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.
Sweet colors song that mentions animals, foods and objects (even el pollito!):
