Although we were unsuccessful at catching the leprechaun last month, we did catch a rainbow! Have you ever thought of all the things you could do with a rainbow? Kindergarten students did just that! After reading A Rainbow of My Own by Don Freeman, students participated in a craft and writing activity. They made a rainbow, painted their hand rainbow colors, and wrote about what they would do with a rainbow of their very own. Ideas included playing hide and seek, using it as a blanket, following it to search for money, using it to jump rope, and hiding it so no one else could have it.
Books provide us with so many opportunities. When you read with your child, I encourage you to extend your book by asking questions, making a project, writing a story extension, or playing a game. Kids are so creative and love to use their imagination! I hope you find a book to have as much fun with as we did!
