February - Red

Another month of trying to get Nathan to recognize colors have past. I'm still not totally convinced that my methods are working. He repeats the color to me but when asked to find a color he isn't doing so well. I need to reevaluate my ideas and be more constant. I blame myself but I'm also wondering if he is just too young still. February was Red. I made some box blocks out of construction paper and slipper gift boxes.
 He likes playing with the box blocks and we have been trying to collect red toys from his toy box. We also try to pick out all his red cars and separate them from the other colors. Like before with the color blue I will continue to review red throughout the next month as we concentrate on March's color - Green. Wish me luck and if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thanks.


  1. We had issues with learning colors too! My doc said not to worry kids pick up things at their own pace and if she isn't interested in learning it then she won't. I finally just started talking about color and pointing out colors in everything we did. Eventually she just caught on. Good luck!

  2. I think you are doing awesome Angel. With little kids it is all about repetition and consistency. If you keep trying, he will get it eventually. Remember it is the time you spend together that is important. You are doing an awesome job!
