This resource is aimed at infant/junior pupils or SEN pupils. It is based on matching colours with their word name, with a “star” theme.
Cut up the sheets into twelve separate cards and laminate each of them individually. Pupils should look at the star on the left of each card. The pupil should then attach a peg to the matching colour word on the right side of each card.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write/verbalise answers but know their colours and their colour words. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what language topic we were currently working on.
Activities such as these were also used as Independent work completed by SEN pupils in their work station.
