Language learning - colour wheel
As you may know, we are a multilingual family so I try to integrate language learning activities into our homeschool. Today, I decided to focus on colours. We are learning Turkish so I did it in this language but you can do any language your children are learning. If you are not learning another language you can always do this activity for your native language aswell.
First, I got a paper plate and divided it into 10 sections.
Then I took different coloured pens and wrote 10 different colours on the plate, one in each section.
Then, I gave the plate to D to colour in. I asked her to say the words as she coloured to try and aid memorisation. Below, is the finished product.
After, she had finished, I tested her by pointing to colours and asking her what the Turkish word was. We can now use our colour wheel over and over again as a learning resource. It's great to make your own resources.
