Rainbow Love

Aloha friends!  Happy April!!  Spring is upon us and we are headed quickly into the end of the year! I am not feeling the pressure yet and I plan to have a little fun before the whirlwind of activities begin.

This month is poetry month and I plan to do a lot of fun activities with my class.  Last year we wrote some great cinquains about rain.  Click {HERE} for post.

This year we are going to write about rainbows.  I have to confess, I have a bit of an obsession with rainbows.  I get so excited with every one that I see and here in Hawaii it is actually quite often.

My family is used to me pulling off the side of the road while driving, to stop and get a good picture! They are all so different and some more vibrant than others.  Some of the most gorgeous ones I have seen were usually when I was out surfing!  I may need to invest in a new waterproof camera.

So my rainbow obsession has come into my classroom.  A few weeks ago we made these cute Name-Bows inspired by Reagan Tunstall.  

We also did some rainbow art and learned about the acronym ROYGBIV.

This coming week I plan to read some rainbow books.

Then we will be writing our own rainbow poetry.  I am going to start with something simple like a shape poem and then we will try some acrostics. If we have time I hope to write cinquains. 

There are so many options, so I made a little freebie to give you some different ideas.  Some are simple and others could be used to challenge your higher kids.

I seriously could spend all month with a rainbow theme!  My literacy centers are all set to go too!

These are the perfect Spring themed centers to go along with our topic.  Just click on the picture to check them out in my TpT shop.

I also created all those bright background papers, which are also available in my shop.

Have I overwhelmed you with all of my rainbow goodness? I hope not! I will leave you with a few of my favorite things!
