Our Rainbow Connection
It seems once we pick up a topic we have a hard time leaving it behind. We move on to new things, but we’re continually curious about it and constantly adding new projects, ideas and learning. I like this, Naomi is particularly excited when she associates new things with what she already knows. Her excitement can be truly inspirational.

this adorable set is found in Mama May I

A few weeks ago we studied the number 7 and to go along we looked at Rainbows which have 7 colors. Naomi quickly learned the order of the 7 colors and has since become familiar with primary versus secondary colors as well. Seems like an advanced concept, but she is so interested…

For our homeschool group that meets every other week she always learns a poem. We were fortunate to find the following and she recited it perfectly yesterday! We found it in this book, but I’m certain it’s in others as well.

The Rainbow

Boats sail on the rivers,

And ships sail on the seas;

But clouds that sail across the sky

Are prettier than these.

There are bridges on the rivers,

As pretty as you please;

But the bow that bridges heaven,

And overtops the trees,

And builds a road from earth to sky,

Is prettier far than these

-Christina Rosetti-

& thanks to Little Acorn Learning we found loads of other great activities in a Rainbow ebook they are offering free! There may be some more rainbow activities posted through the week.

    I printed the e-book as well, and I'm going to do some of the activities with Elizabeth since she has spring break the last week of March (but the rest of the kids will be in school). Mama May I has some cute stuff! We bought the transportation memory set a while back. 🙂
