Colors
Blue is the lake,  (point to the floor)
Yellow is the sun  (point to the sky)
Silver are the stars,
When the day is done  (wiggle fingers in the air)
Red is the apple,  (make circle with hands)
Green is the tree  (raise arms over head like branches)
Brown is a chocolate chip cookie  (rub tummy)
for you and me!

The Colors in my World 
(Tune: “The Farmer in the Dell”)
There’s colors in my world,
There’s colors in my world.
Hi ho the cherrio
There’s colors in my world.
The yellow takes the blue,
The yellow takes the blue,
They hug together merrilyy,
And now there’s green too.

The white takes the red,
The white takes the red,
They hug together merrily
And pink appears instead.

Colorful Movement
Red, red, touch your head.
Blue, blue, tie your shoe.
Brown, brown, touch the ground.
White, white, take a bite.
Black, black, touch your back.
Purple, purple, turn in a circle.
Pink pink, give a wink.
Gray, gray, shout hurray!

Thinking of a Color Game
I am thinking of a color that is the color of the sky. What color am I? (Blue).

Sun … yellow
Grass …green
Milk…white
Lemon…yellow
Lime…green

When I See Chant
When I See Red I put my hand on my head
When I see Blue I touch my shoe
When I see Green I wash my face real clean
When I see Yellow I wave to the fellows
When Orange is found I put my hand on the ground
When I see Pink I think, I think, I think

If You’re Wearing …Song (Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)
If you’re wearing red today, red today, red today,
If you’re wearing red today, please jump up.

(continue naming other colors)
