Poems and nursery rhymes are a great way to engage children in the repetition of concepts and vocabulary introduced.
Here is a color rhyme to recite with your class. Invite them to follow your actions. Point to the color you recite as you do the movement.
If your clothes have any red,
Put your finger on your head.
If you’re wearing any blue,
Put your finger on your shoe.
If you’re wearing something green,
Wave your hand so that you’re seen.
If you have on something yellow,
Give a smile like a happy fellow.
If your clothes have any brown,
Turn your smile into a frown.
If you’re wearing any black,
Put your hands behind your back.
If your clothes have any white,
Stamp your feet with all your might!
