This series of blog posts is dedicated to learning and teaching colors.

If your kids are new to such words as red, green, blue, yellow, etc., the first thing you would need to do is to introduce your kids to color words. The idea we like at Kid’s Academy is to dedicate a certain day of the week to a particular color. You may want to gather the things of one particular color and introduce them to your kids throughout the day. Let’s take a look at what you can do during an ‘orange’ day, for example.

Let your kid start an ‘orange’ day with a glass of orange juice and a piece of carrot or pumpkin pie. Let her choose an orange piece of clothes to wear at school or at home. If you drive your kid to school you may want to point out to some orange road cones where the road works are in progress. If you’re one of those parents who go to the supermarket after picking up kids from school, it would be a good idea to buy some orange groceries, like carrots, bell peppers, oranges, and just something packed orange.  When at home let your child do their homework with orange stationery and spend your free time making some orange crafts or playing basketball

“Red” from Disney could be a great movie to finish off the day, the only thing you would need to explain is why we use the word ‘red’ when we actually talk about orange hair

We hope you enjoyed our ‘orange’ day scenario. We are sure you have plenty of other orange ideas. Please, feel free to share them with us by mailing at info@kidsacademy.mobi or posting them to our Facebook page right under the Orange Day picture.
