Rainbow Writing & Feathers for Lunch
During Word Work today, we learned how to write our words using Rainbow Writing. To practice spelling them, we wrote each word in one color crayon, then rewrote it with a different color on top of it. We repeated the steps so that each word was written in four colors. Then, the word looked like a rainbow! It was a fun way to practice writing our words.
Our big book this week was Feathers for Lunch by Lois Elhert. Our main focus was onomatopoeias, when a word imitates the sound it is describing. After reading it today, the children each created their own bird, gave it a name, and then wrote down the sound it makes. We hung up their work outside our room for you to see!
