As I searched for songs to teach the colors, I found that most out there don’t deal with all the colors. There are some great ones that deal with a specific color. They teach you how to spell the color and name some things that are traditionally that color. I will try and add some of these songs in the coming months. Here are some color songs and rhymes that deal with all the colors. I have attached some examples of some of the visuals I use for these songs. Enjoy!
If you see red Sung to: If you’re happy and you know it
If you see a red ____, nod your head
If you see a Blue ____ touch your shoe
You can have the kids pick a secret color and tell them to find that color in the room. Then they tell you what they found in the song.
Where are the colors? Sung to: The Paw-Paw Patch
Where, oh, where are the kids with blue on?
Stand up tall so we can see you now
Little red caboose
Little red caboose, Chug, chug, chug-
Little red caboose Behind the train, train, train, train.
Coming around the track, track, track, track-
Little red caboose Behind the train, choo!
Idea #1: Change colors for the caboose
Idea #2: Have the children get in a line and chug around the room like a choo-choo train.

color you want for the underlined words.
Idea #1: Give out the balloons visuals to the students and have them tell you what color they have
Idea #2: Have ten students stand up representing a balloon, they could hold a balloon visual or the number. When there balloon ‘pops’ they sit down.
