We started off our Letter Rr week by reading
A Rainbow Of My Own by:Don Freeman
This book is about a little boy that uses his imagination to play with rainbows and wants one of his own.
Well, so did we! But how?
So we conducted two science experiments.
You can read how to have a rainbow of your own HERE.
Make a rainbow in a bowl HERE.
These were so much fun!
The next morning I made Rainbow pancakes for them!
They ate the entire batch!
For our craft which will go into their ABC Binders we made retro R's.
I found this idea HERE
I printed an R template and cut strips of construction paper.
They glued each strip across the R to made it look like a Retro R.
When they were done gluing the strips, I cut the R out and they glued to black construction paper.
Here are all of them.
They colored a rainbow tracer from HERE
And practiced their pre-writing skills.
Another activity we made was Rainbow Crayons
We read Mouse Paint by:Ellen Stoll Walsh
This book is about three white mice who find jars of paint and discover the world of color.
For our craft to go along with the book we painted rocks to make Rainbow Mice!
I found the craft HERE.
We used six flat round rocks to paint each one the colors of the rainbow.
Drew a mouse face and glued yarn to match for the tails. I didn't have every color so I used white yarn and a marker to color it to match the mouse.
Then we didn't know what to do with our mice! So I painted a wooden board white that I found in my garage. Put a hanger on the back, and then I would glue the mice on them.
So I used my cricut to cut some letters that spell Rainbow Mice and added a rainbow to it.
Now the Rainbow Mice are hanging on the wall in their toy room.
