Go through the slide show before you show to your student so that you will be familiar with what the animation looks like. • Directions for specific slides: – On slide 6, talk about each primary color that appears when you click the mouse. Tell the student that these are the primary colors. – On slide 7, talk about what happens when you mix the colors as they appear when you click the mouse. – On slide 8, talk about each secondary color that appears when you click the mouse. Tell the student that these are the secondary colors. – On slides 9 to 12, read the title of the slide as a direction or question to your student. The student should find the correct color on the page. This is called receptive identification. When you click the mouse, the correct color will be emphasized. – On slides 13 to 18, the student should fill in the blank with either “primary” or “secondary” color. You can read the sentence, and stop at the blank to let the student say the answer. This is called expressive identification. When you click the mouse, the correct word will appear in the blank. Primary and Secondary Color Videos • Start introducing the concept with a fun video, such as this song about primary and secondary colors from Sesame Street (http://youtu.be/yu44JRTIxSQ) or from Barney (http://youtu.be/90bhBUJRY20) • You can then move to a more instructional video. Here’s a very visual and concrete demonstration of mixing paint colors to make new colors. Made for ESL students, but I also think it would be great for students with autism: http://youtu.be/ekuLw4KRCHw Primary Colors Red Yellow Blue Mixing Primary Colors Red + Yellow = Orange Red + Blue = Purple Blue + Yellow = Green Secondary Colors Purple Green Orange Which one is a primary color?
