Colors Day 7: Rainbow

We took a day to review the rainbow colors that we have learned so far.  We had fun with sorting colors, reading about rainbows, eating rainbow snacks, and making rainbow crafts, and playing with rainbow toys.  He did great with the review and remembered all the colors.


Read: What Makes a Rainbow? by Betty Schwartz

Song: If You Are Wearing Red

If you are wearing red, Shake your head,
If you are wearing red, Shake your head,
If you are wearing red,
Then please shake your head.
If you are wearing red, shake your head.

Blue, touch your shoe
Green, bow like a queen
Yellow, Shake like Jell-O

Discuss: What are the colors of the rainbow? Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple 

Snack: Rainbows made from sugar cookies or Rainbow fruit kabobs with different colored fruit.

Pattern Cards
I gave T some pattern cards and colored pom-poms.  He put the colored pom-poms on the corresponding color on the pattern card.IMG_4770

Color Wheel

Give the child a blank color wheel and put some paint on the primary sections… let the child finger paint the color wheel.IMG_4782

Animal Cottage

T played with his colored Animal Cottage. He opens each door with the corresponding key and lets all of the shapes out.  Then locks the doors back up and put the shapes in where they go.IMG_4785

Sorting Color Dolls

T sorted the alphabet dolls according to the color of their clothes. He liked making them hold hands.IMG_4789 IMG_4790

Sticker Sorting

Divide the paper into 6 sections and write the name of the color for that section in that color. Then let the child put colored stickers in the correct section.IMG_4792
