Color Nomenclature Cards

English and Spanish Nomenclature Cards

You can use these color nomenclature cards for young children. Find objects that are the same color as the cards and let your child match the objects to the correct colors. Start with using 2 or 3 primary color cards for toddlers. Use your native language first.Learn the names of colors by using the 3 period lesson .

Let older children read the cards for reading vocabulary skills. You can make these into 3 part cards too.



Here is an assortment of colors and word symbols in English and Spanish for a matching activity. Match the colors and words in English and/or Spanish. This is a fun reading lesson. Use the above nomenclature cards as control (answer) cards.
