Have you noticed that the kids love to suggest “multicolored” or “tie die” or “stripes” or “polka dots” in response to the question “What color was it?” I love that. They keep wanting things colorful – they don’t want their worlds to become black and white!
Rainbows, also, seem to get into stories often. Anytime a rainbow comes up in a story, I love to ask this question: “What is at the end of your rainbow?” Each kid says something different. It could be the subject for a entire semester. It’s a great question to ask them.

    Curious you should mention the rainbow because I had a Do Now question last week which asked, What does Spring represent for you?, and someone mentioned rainbow. We had a nice discussion about rainbows and I made a mental note to make a big, beautiful rainbow on my in-class bulletin board so they all learn the work in Spanish.
    By the way, does anyone have a suggestion for the best way to make a nice, big, colorful rainbow for a bulletin board?
