To teach reading skills such as colours and numbers, I make a matching game that my students request over and over. Simply write out the words for colours/letters and make a matching colour square or number. Cut them out into similar-sized squares and laminate. Laminate a large piece of colored paper and put velcro on the backs of the squares and equally spaced on the colored paper. The game can be used to match the colour name to its square or vice versa. Line the students up and hand them a colour square. (You can do this in two teams). The student gets a point for each correct placement. If they are wrong, the card goes to the next student. Students love sticking the velcro together and the competition gives them added incentive to learn their colour/number words.
