Here are the available worksheets about colours! There are 163 to choose from with most being for beginners since talking about colours is pretty basic and straightforward. This worksheet here has been designed to test students’ knowledge of colors. Simply print out and cut in half lengthwise for a simple colour related activity. At first, ask students to fill in the words for the colors they already know. Even beginners may have acquired some English vocabulary before taking classes so see what students know first. As you introduce and practice colour words, have students fill in the blanks that they skipped the first time through. When completed, they will have a great study guide to help them remember and practice colour words.
Since colours are an elementary level topic, try not to overwhelm students by introducing too many words at a time. With very young learners, students will often not complete any writing activities in class so it is even more important to go slowly and try to get them to recognize the words as you say them. You could still use the worksheet above with young learners. In this case, simply say a colour word out loud and ask students to point to the colour on their sheets. You can survey the classroom to see how students did and then say “That’s right. This is blue.” while pointing to the correct colored dot or holding up a solid blue flashcard. Colours are usually introduced very early on in ESL courses so more advanced students will not often have the opportunity to use them unless they are describing something.
