A nice and simple poem to teach colours and to draw attention to the beauty of our colourful surroundings.
FOCUS OF THE GAMES:
• grouping fruits based on their colours
• improving pattern recognition
• colouring pages with instructions
IN THE CLASSROOM:
The poem is easy to act out, it can be used to rearrange the classroom and make learners stand in a circle. As a game, a student calls out a colour in the middle of a circle and asks the ones wearing something of that colour to swap places. The aim of the game is to find a place and not to stay in the middle.
