The week before vacation, we made Adjective Rainbows. It was an idea I saw on Pinterest. It went perfect with our Religion lesson on The Golden Rule. How should we treat others.......the same way we want others to treat us. We brainstormed a list of positive adjectives....
Then the children thought of kind adjectives to describe their friends. We picked names out of a basket to fill out the strips. The group of children met together and discussed what were the best adjectives to put on the rainbow and surprise the special person on the cloud. It was such a treat to find out what kind things the other children thought about each student. It was the highlight of the day. The first graders loved this activity. This is something I will do again next year.
I found three great books to read about clouds to the students as well.
