Once upon a rainbow

Published on March 11, 2010 under Art


Somewhere, over the rainbow….
After the kiddos finished up their leprechaun pictures from yesterday, we started a collaborative rainbow project !

It was during free choice time so there were other activities going on at the same time. Here is someones wonderful picture they were working on.

Dillion was proud of his stacked rainbow.
And the work begins. For the green we used fake grass. The yellow was yard, the red was torn tissue paper, the orange was foam stickers , the blue was glitter and the purple was paint.

They worked so hard.
And when we hung it up they thought it was beautiful.
Randy took the camera outside today and took some pictures for a while. He has worked hard to make sure there are many opportunities for the children to choose from outside.
Geneviette and Rosanna are drawing on a write on wipe off board he has attached to the fence.
Basketball is always a favorite !

We can balance on the beams around our dirt pile. Yes.. I said dirt pile.
Audrey is playing in the music center Randy created outside.
Rosanna is taking a break to read a book on the porch. Don’t you LOVE that we have a front porch they can sit on and relax ?
Sand Box
Ahoy Matey!

This is inside the playhouse… and it sums it all up.

    I love finding odd things to encourage sorting too. I'll use just about anything that has sections, like those divided boxes classroom packs of crayons, markers for chalk come in. I'm going to be on the lookout for a chip n dip . . . I mean sorting basket like this one.

    Love the picture! He seems to be doing a lot better this week. The mornings are still a bit tough, but I think he will get back in routine. Randy told gma he noticed a real difference already. I am loving it!

    I love how you assessed the kids… hands on experiences are soooo much better. They really do retain so much more 🙂 I, too, LOVE the thrift shops, consignment shops! They have the best assortment of trays and cha-keys at the best prices!! Great Unit you did on Transportation!!
