Activity with the Spanish Color Monster Flashcards

These flashcards will serve as a valuable tool to engage your students in an activity that enhances their memorization of colors, everyday vocabulary, and common phrases in Spanish. By using phrases such as "Yo tengo un color..." (I have a color...) or "El/La... es de color..." (The... is colored...), students will practice applying the vocabulary they see regularly to describe objects and their colors.

This activity can be conducted either in small groups or with the entire class. It provides an opportunity for students to actively participate, interact with one another, and reinforce their language skills. Through this engaging exercise, students will not only improve their memorization of colors and vocabulary but also gain confidence in constructing and using simple phrases in Spanish.

Color Game

You can use this game to practice the vocabulary related to the colors or to practice the use of colors as adjectives. I play this game with my students online since I teach one-on-one but you can organize your students by pairs in case you want to use the board in your in person class. I use a digital dice since my lessons are online. There are a good number of online dice sites, choose the one that is best for you. I used this game after my students have seen how to use the indefinite articles a - an (a-an) or the definitive articles el- la (the).


1. Two students or you and your students will choose one exit spot on the poster game. You can be player number one and your student, player number two.

2. Each person will have the opportunity to roll the dice. Each person will count and move based on the number they get. You can draw a line or put a mark on the colors that are being counted. If the game is played in person you can use anything you'd like as a game piece.

3. Each person will say one sentence where they name one thing with the color they are on in that moment for example: Un perro café - A brown dog Un sol amarillo - A yellow sun.

See the video below for you to have an idea of how to play the game with your students.

Learn the colors in Spanish with " Paco el Gato"

This educational and fun Spanish story teaches your students basic vocabulary about the colors. This story is based on an English story called Scat the Cat by Dr. Jean that I modified to teach in Spanish. I used it during the lessons with my one-on-one students but you are more than welcome to use it in person or with more students as well. I also use this activity with adults or kids but I change the way I tell the story depending on the age and interests of my students. I add some grammar for the students that have a higher level in their Spanish knowledge. This activity may take more than a class of 45 minutes so take all the time you need to help your students have a good understanding of the story before they work on the activities. I am sharing the steps I took to make my own cat with cheap, common resources you can probably find in your own house. I hope you like it and use it during your Spanish lessons with your students. Be as creative as you want to be while telling the story and use as many resources as you can in order for your students to understand the vocabulary (images, toys, body movements, photos, etc).

¿What do you see?

Use this printable game to practice vocabulary related to colors and words commonly used on a daily basis that your students will have studied before. This activity can be worked on online as well. Just show it on your screen.


1. Ask your students what they see on the sheet in Spanish, for example, ¿Qué ves en la ficha?

2. Students will read and say the name of the object and the color they see out loud.

3. The teacher or the students will underline the vocabulary they are mentioning with a digital marker. If the teacher is the one circling the images, ask for extra details to help find the word they are saying or point at the image you want them to say.

See the instructional video to assist in understanding the activity.

Colors as adjective

Learn about the colors and the way to use them as adjectives in Spanish.

Amarillo, azul y rojo

Make learning colors a fun and interactive experience for your students with the catchy song "Amarillo, azul y rojo." You can easily find it on the YouTube channel Tía Botas.

In this engaging activity, encourage your students to actively participate by assigning specific actions to each color. When they hear the word "amarillo" (yellow), prompt them to touch their head. When they hear "azul" (blue), encourage them to touch their ears. And when they hear "rojo" (red), have them tap their shoulders.

By incorporating movement and gestures, you'll enhance their learning experience and make it more memorable. This interactive approach will help reinforce color recognition and vocabulary while keeping your students engaged and entertained.
