1-2-3 Come Color A Rainbow With Me!
Are you looking for a fun way to review ordinal numbers or the colors of the rainbow?
If so, I think you'll enjoy the easy reader, "Let's Color A Rainbow."
Because of St. Patty's Day and the folklore surrounding leprechauns and their pots of gold at the end of the rainbow, I introduced rainbows in March, and then revisited them in April, when the spring showers started here in Michigan.
My Y5's loved crouching on the floor and singing the Let's Make A Rainbow song, and then jumping up and arching their arms, as they finished the song, which is included at the end of the booklet.
Students trace and then write ordinal numbers as well as color words and then cut and glue the matching picture to their page.
Children also think of something else that is that color and write it down in the space provided.
When everyone has completed their booklet, read it aloud to reinforce the words and review concepts of print.
I think your little ones will enjoy taking it home and sharing it with their families.
I encourage this, so that students once again review what they've learned.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars, Look How Far That You Have Come!
Whenever I got a chance, I plugged in nursery rhymes into my Y5’s day; I felt it was important to cover all sorts of genres.
Surprisingly, the longer I taught, the less little ones I found who knew nursery rhymes by heart!
I guess that sort of went the way of “I love to color!” and enjoying a coloring book.
I used to have an entire unit on nursery rhymes, but the school year zipped by so fast, that there was never enough time in May to get to everything I wanted to.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star can be plugged in anywhere during the year, as most teachers have a Star Student board, and as teachers, we are endeavoring to help those little ones, twinkle and shine their brightest.
This 12-page packet is a fun way to reinforce a variety of Common Core State Standards: L.K.2a, L.1.2b, RF.1.1a, RF.K3c, RF.K.2a, RF.K.1a, RF.K.1c, K.G.1
The packet includes:
When everyone is done, read the booklet as a whole group to reinforce and review concepts of print.
So that you are also covering more standards, point out spaces, capital letters, end punctuation etc.
Any of these items, make nice activities for your Daily 5 or word work.
