This week in Preschool we learned all about Rainbows. Our letter of the week was letter “S.” Some of our letter “S” words included: sun, strawberry, stars, snake, spoon, sail, snowflake, spider, snow, snail, sandwich, snowman, and superheroes. Throughout the week we read both fiction and non-fiction books about rainbows. The children were able to identify the colors in a rainbow and count how many colors are in a rainbow as well.

Centers included:

  • S is for Strawberry & Superhero
  • Fruit Loop rainbows
  • Roll a Rainbow math game
  • Rainbow 10 frames with playdough
  • Painting with watercolors
  • Rainbow bread cooking activity
  • Whiteboard writing (both letters & numbers)
  • Straw blowing rainbows
  • Religion: “Jesus Dies”
  • Rainbow early reader
  • Making a rainbow using bingo dabbers
  • Rainbow water walking science activity
  • Practiced writing our names by rainbow writing

Preschool also attended the “Land of Smiles” assembly and the dress rehearsal of the school play “The Wizard of Oz.”
