Somewhere Over the Rainbow…

The Speech Room is filled with gorgeous Rainbows as we explore:

  • Colors (rainbow colors of course!)
  • Vocabulary (arc, arch, semi-circle, half-circle)
  • Texture (crepe paper, tissue paper, ribbon, glue)
  • Size (long, short, thick, thin)
  • Articulation (/l/ in “glue, long, layer, yellow”, /r/ in “rainbow”)


St. Patrick’s Day brings back memories of drunk family members, so I decided to focus on something other than the Irish holiday.

Fortunately, yesterday only one student asked me to recall my Physics classes as to “what makes a rainbow”. I coughed a few times. Then changed the subject. But if they ask today…. I found this website and can tell them, “Here. Read this.”

If you are feeling mighty crafty, you can also do these rainbow projects:

May your day be filled with Rainbows , kisses , and pots of gold !

    I tried that idea – coughing a few times and changing the subject – but it didn’t work for me. Does it only work for teachers and not mums?

    and I gave it to you –
