Color Game for Preschoolers
On the fridgorator I keep colors clipped up on a magnet and when he decides to pull them off we talk about each of the colors.
We use visual (seeing), auditory (hearing), kinesthetic (moving), and tactile (touching) as part of our leaning styles. While he krinkles the paper I say, "Yellow, Yellow, Yellow" and then I will say, "Orange, Orange, Orange." Then, I will lay them out and say, "Where's the orange?" (he picks it up) Then I say, "Where's the yellow?" (he picks it up)....and so on. He gets it right 4 out 5 times and he is only one! YAY! He gets so excited and it's fun for him! We only do a couple of colors at a time but mix up which colors we use. We plan on doing this atleast twice a week now.
Here is a great website from education.com that talks about how to use different modalities!
