Teaching Tips

  • Create preschool learning games around colors. Play “I spy” with colors, make a whole picture with various shades of one color, look for a certain color out in nature, and sign “color” each time!
  • Combine “color” when talking about an actual color! Such as, “I see the color blue”. You can sign the word color and also sign the actual color together.
