Teaching colours

Anonymous

I've tries board books with color themes. He picks up everything else (surprising amounts of details and even remembers the order in which the animals and birds etc come in the book) but is having hard time getting his colors. What can i do to help. He is 2 and knows his numbers and the letter song (for reference). Im not worried but just wanted to see if there is something i could do.

    My daughter had a ball pit. We would ask her to "find the pink/blue/purple ball" and had so much fun. She new her colors by the time she turned 1.

    Just repetition, they all learn different things at a different place. My friends daughter could say all of her animal sounds by 1, now she's 8 and no farther ahead than other kids her age.

    I think colors was the last for mine too learn. I randomly showed her same items different colors throughout the day and she picked up on it. Dont rush it they'll get it..

    It sounds like he likes animals. I would use that theme to teach colors. And make it fun. Toddlers learn best through play. A fun way is to get a bin, full with water and get some food color. Let him drop some in and just name the colors. It doesn’t matter when learns his colors. What does learning colors early or on “time” really help besides increasing vocabulary. He seems right on track. Numbers and alphabet are more important. He is doing well.
