Rainbow Tot Pack

Rainbow Tot Pack

Ladybug LOVES the song Somewhere Over the Rainbow.  My mom began singing it to her a long time ago and it has been a nightly song for her ever since.  She can even sing the entire things herself-she mixes up the verses, it’s so cute!  In honor of spring and her love of this song, I created a “Somewhere over the RAINBOW Tot Pack” for her!

Rainbow Tot Pack

I chose skills based on where she is at, so some of you may be able to use this with your younger or older children, but it is geared towards tots…ages 2-4.

You can download the Rainbow Tot Pack for free on my website!

In the Works ~ Rainbow Lapbook

We are almost finished with our rainbow lapbook! One of our final activities was to follow a little recipe book (I had the template from when I used to teach Kindergarten and got The Mailbox magazine), to make a rainbow with a pot of gold…He had a blast, I was just thankful he didn’t eat ALL of it!

Outside Learning…

What a beautiful day it was here on Thursday! And it just so happened that our reading lesson for the day was a story about a kite, and the followup activity was to make our own kite! We did everything outside together and enjoyed every minute of it!

He drew a rainbow on the kite (wonder where he got that idea?) It was great because he had to remember Roy G Biv on his own. Then we did some measuring to be sure we followed the directions for making the kite. Here he is measuring 6 feet for the string.
And finally we finished it!
It wasn’t windy at all but he made the best of it, running around the yard and “making” it fly :).

In the Works ~ Rainbow Lapbook

We began our work on the rainbow lapbook today and already we both love it! Here’s how we began…

1st we read the book, Rainbow and You, which was a great way to begin for us! I wanted to start by teaching Roy G Biv, using the printable I created for him. This book did a great job of introducing Roy G Biv and also rainbows in general.

After reading the book, he got to work on his roygbiv mini book, and we also introduced color word spelling using the printable I created from the songs at this site. He really liked learning how to spell color words with these cute songs.Here he is posing with his completed product!
