Rainbows are yet another theme for March. It’s a wonderful way to review colors, color words and a specific color pattern.
I designed the easy reader booklet Let’s Color A Rainbow to reinforce ordinal numbers as well.
Students trace and write the ordinal numbers and colors in the matching color, cut and glue the appropriate picture to the page and then think of another object that is also that color and write it on the bottom.
Lots of core standards are covered in this little booklet!
A colored page of pictures is provided as well as one in black & white if teachers opt for their students to color them.
This might take a bit more time, but it reinforces the concept in yet another way.
When everyone has completed their booklet, read it as a whole group. Students will enjoy taking this booklet home and sharing it with their families.

For some more rainbow fun, take a journey with your students to the end of the rainbow and discover the Leprechaun’s pot of gold.
What would they do with all of that money? Sounds like a wonderful writing prompt to me, so I made it into a class book for March.
Class books are a fun way to get students writing. Children complete the writing prompt sentence with their own ideas and illustrate the page.
Teachers collect, collate and then read to the class, or have students share their own page when they come to it.
Class books are perfect for parent-teacher conferences and a terrific way to show improvement in writing.
There are 5 class books in this collection including 2 graphing extensions.
