How to teach toddlers their colors, interesting article I found on pinterest.



http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=why-johnny-name-colors

On pinterest, I ran across this interesting article.  It basically says that children learn their colors faster by saying "the balloon is read" instead of "the red balloon."  In English, we usually put the adjective before the noun, so our kiddos don't get a lot of practice with learning it this way.

I thought it was interesting from an SLP standpoint too though, because many language processing kiddos struggle with describing activities anyway.  In therapy, we do exactly this.  We sort items and then say "the puppy is little, the elephant is big etc.  Only after they get the concept, can they start practicing putting the adjective in front of the noun.  Makes sense for learning colors too.
