Color sorting houses

I made these laminated sheets by cutting simple house shapes from each color of construction paper - red, blue, yellow, green, purple, orange, and gluing them on a 12x18 white sheet. Each student gets a container with various different colored objects from our class manipulatives and toys, and sorts them into house by color. You could use beads or candy as well. If you have students who need to work on just 2-3 colors you could make sheets with just 2-3 houses and the corresponding colored items.

One problem I have found is that many manipulative sets the red and the orange are too similar, so if you include orange then look for items that are not red-orange. Doing just red-yellow-blue-green is a good place to start for 3-year-olds. Hope you get some good ideas from this and that your students can enjoy color sorting with many different items; imagination is the limit!
