Color Words
Write the -ay word gray on the board. Point out that gray is a color word. Briefly brainstorm some other color words with children, making a word web on the board. Use matching colored chalk to write and circle each color word. For example, write the word red with red chalk. Then have children work alone or in pairs to make word webs of color words. Tell them to write and circle each word in the color it represents. Encourage children to look at their crayons and markers for unusual color names.
