learning colours

Kyle and Julien working on colours
Mr. K (26 mths) is just starting to learn his colours. For the past few months, he knew the names of the colours, but he didn't associate the name with the ACTUAL colour. If you asked him for the purple block, he would grab a red one and say purple.

Last night, I was sitting on the couch while the boys played with their cars (which is pretty much our most time consuming past time in this household) and I heard them talking. While they were playing, Mr. J was telling Mr. K what colour the cars were - and Mr. K was actually repeating the proper ones. Later on, after Mr. J was in bed Mr. K and I were playing with his cash register - which has yellow, orange and purple coins - and he was getting them right.

It was so wonderful, and to know that Mr. J was a part of the teaching process made my heart melt just a little bit!


  1. It is nice to see these achievements lovely post

  2. Yay! I love seeing them learning!

  3. I have been working with my 25 month old on colors for a long time. He doesn't speak much yet but he understands. He is pretty good with red and blue (the ones I focus on). If I ask him to bring the red ball he will. It is amazing to see how they learn. I am excited for when he can teach his little brother things also.

  4. It's fun to see them learning! My 2-1/2-year-old knows her colours very well, but I'm not sure how she picked it up - maybe from her older sister or just from us talking. Colours are all around us so it's an easy thing to teach. :)
