This week we will be looking at colors.  We will talk about rainbows, the sun in the sky and clouds.  There will be a rainbow of colors in all the rooms this week.  The children will have an opportunity to talk about all the colors they see in the classroom and outside.  The spring flowers are one way you can talk with your child about colors as you walk around your neighborhood.  The daffodils are out and the tulips are getting ready to bloom – lots of colors to talk about and to practice “focus”.  You can play ‘I SPY’ as you walk:  I spy something___(insert a color).  Kids love this game and then you can let them take turns being the leader and the one who gets to find something for you to ‘spy’.

Other ways you can work on focus – switch words to a familiar song and see if your child notices ( wheels on the train instead of bus).  This is a fun and creative way to sing songs that encourages focus and listening skills.   Play a sorting game when you clean up toys – let’s find all the blue toys, put all the round toys in the basket, who has a soft toy?   Try singing a song while waiting in a line or restaurant.  It gives the child a tool for managing a situation that they cannot control and allows them an outlet to deal with frustration that they might have waiting in a line, for food to come, sitting at a table.


There’s a great, big rainbow
In the sky,
With pretty colors
Way up high.

When it starts to rain
And the sun comes out-
A beautiful rainbow
Will pop out!

I see rainbows, I see rainbows,
Way up high In the sky. 

They are red and orange, Yellow, green and blue.
Purple, too. What a view!

I see rainbows, I see rainbows,
Way up high In the sky.

They are made from sunshine,
Shinning through the rain.
What a view In skies so blue!



Here is a bunny with ears so funny

And here is her hole in the ground

When a noise she hears, she pricks up her ears

And jumps in her hole in the ground.

Baby Bird

A mother bird laid and egg with care

And when it hatched a baby was there

She ate and she ate 

and she grew and she grew 

and then one day away she flew
