April was a rainy month, however fun and excitement abounds in Rainbow Room. April showers bring May flowers, and the children made a bouquet of flowers using their hands and ink pads. We created rain sticks from paper towel rolls and rice. Did you notice your child’s yellow toes? They had lots of fun stepping in yellow paint and walking across our sun to the song “We’re Walking on Sunshine, Oh Yeah and Doesn’t It Feel Good!”
Rainbow room created a painting for the Lincoln Community Fair Celebration. The children had a great time with forks, spoons and knives that were dipped in paint, to produce a wonderful painting! We also have been using the felt board to practice counting and one to one correspondence. “Goldilocks and The Three Bears” and “Five Green and Speckled Frogs” are favorites. The children love to recreate these stories using dramatic play.
Next month we will start a curriculum based on the song “One Two Buckle My Shoe.”
