“Great Big Rainbow” (from Preschool Express)
(Tune: “I’m a Little Teapot”)
There’s a great, big rainbow
In the sky,
With pretty colors
Way up high.
When it starts to rain
And the sun comes out-
A beautiful rainbow
Will pop out!
“Rainbow Dancers” (from Storytime Katie)
Rainbow dancers let’s get ready
Hold your scarves nice and steady.
You’ll hear the colors of the rainbow.
Listen for your time to go.
Red scarves turn around,
Orange scarves up and down.
Yellow scarves reach up high,
Green scarves fly, fly, fly.
Blue scarves tickle your nose,
Purple scarves touch your toes.
Everybody dance around,
Swirl your scarves up and down.
Rainbow dancers dance around,
Scarves swirl up and down.
Our colorful dance is at an end.
Thank you, thank you, all my friends.
Rainbow Pasta – I chose to do something simple this week, and had the children string colored noodles onto pipe cleaners (fine motor skills and pattern recognition). To color the noodles, I put them in a ziplock bag and added liquid watercolors. I didn’t measure the amount, and added more watercolor as needed.
