Shapes and Colours Resources

Help children to recognise and identify differences between shapes and colours with our range of resources.

Our colours and shapes resources support children's early development, focusing on important concepts to improve language and numeracy skills. By working through the card matching activities, children will also develop their fine motor skills, coordination, concentration and perseverance to complete a task

All the following resources are available exclusively in Special Words Plus and Special Stories Plus.

The text included in these resources are currently available in English, but you can edit the words to use these resources in any language.

Colours and Coloured Objects

Being able to correctly identify different colours is an important part of a child's development. Use our two colour resources to support language development, helping children to recognise colours and their name. 

The best way for children to understand colours is through repetition and slowly explanding their vocabuluary. Increase the cards per page to add a new level of diffculty and help children  identify a range of common objects in different colours. These resources focus on children understanding concepts about colour and being able to identify them within everyday life. 

There are 2 collections of resources in this category, Coloured Objects and Colours. Coloured Objects focuses on different obects in a single colour, and Colours looks at a single object in a range of colours. The resources available to download are:
