This very easy worksheet is designed for practice with both colors and shapes and can be used for ESL or any world language. Start by having students color each shape according to your oral directions in the target language. (Ex. “El cícrculo es rojo.”) When the coloring is complete, have students cut out the pieces.
They now have everything they need to play an easy listening game. Simply name shapes or colors in order and have students follow these directions to line up their pieces. It’s a good idea to start with just three commands and work your way up to all six.
I’ve also found this to be a great, low-stress assessment for younger students. When we sit in a circle, I watch 2-3 students at a time and note their progress to see if they have mastered the vocabulary and what (if any) errors are common across the class.
Note that this project was originally designed to be cut in half to save paper, but you could also have two different colors of each shape to make the game more challenging by specifying the shape and color for the ordering game.
