Here's a free color identification and word writing printable worksheet.

(The worksheet can be printed in color or in black & white.)


  • pencil
  • box of crayons (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)


  1. Review all the colors of the rainbow. Explain the correct rainbow order (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple).
  2. Each student has a pencil. Read the directions on the worksheet. (Read "red" & explain how to trace "red" together out loud while correctly forming each letter on the white board or overhead projector).
  3. Each student has a box of crayons. Use the red crayon to color in the crayon & heart.  (Repeat this process for each color.)
  4. Draw an arched rainbow on the board. Students make their own rainbows on the worksheet.

Now, play a color game. Students identify objects around the room with different colors.
