               1. green car

               2. green sweater

               3. green food (celery) etc.

For greater observation skills, be more specific in how you detail what you see: 

    1. green Ford Explorer SUV

     2. Dad's green button-down shirt

     3. green dishtowel under sink

QUESTIONS FOR CHILD

If you could rename the colors of your crayons, what would you call the color green? What about the color red or blue?

Can you tell me what some of your friends have been doing at home, school, or in their free time? Is there something a friend is doing that you would like to do also?
