Fire Hydrant Color Practice

Today I pulled out the Fire Hydrant Color pages from Home School Creations. I just pulled four colors. I then put the corresponding crayons on the table with the pages. We read the words and then I had Jacob choose the correct color crayon. Colors are not his strength so I chose to control the activity to keep it manageable for him and to prevent frustration.
Next I had him take the Hydrant page over to the color wall and tape it to the corresponding color. He loves this part of our color practice. I think it is the movement that he enjoys. For some of the colors I have to remind him to "match" the color on the paper to the color on the wall. By just choosing a few colors at a time he can stay engaged and enjoy what the task at hand is without getting overly frustrated.
