Literacy Ideas and Reading Activities for Toddlers, Preschoolers, Kindergarten, and Elementary Students


Home > Coloring Pages > Reading Games Ideas

Apples4theteacher has a great selection of interactive coloring page readers. On the coloring page list, readers are designated by the speaker icon.

Here are some ideas in how to use them in the classroom or as a reinforcement of literacy lessons at home.

#1 Beginning reading:

  • Have your child practice reading the sentence on line as they color their picture.
  • Print out the picture and post your child's coloring on the refrigerator.
  • Have your child point to each word in the sentence and read the words to you.

#2 Sentence matching:

  • Print several completed coloring pages.
  • Cut off the sentence from each picture.
  • Have your child match the sentence with each picture.
  • Have your child read each sentence and explain why that sentence goes with the picture.

#3 Following directions:

  • Some of the coloring pages use sentences that specifically describe the picture (ie mentions colors or numbers).
  • Have your child complete the picture as described in the sentence.

#4 Literacy with math:

  • Find all coloring pages that use number words in the sentence.
  • Show how the number is represented in the coloring page.

#5 Letter recognition or beginning word sounds:

  • Print out the interactive alphabet coloring pages and use for an alphabet book. Room has been left on each page to glue pictures of words that start with that letter. Old magazines work well with this idea.
