Today the prekindergarten class created these colorful rainbows…

They began by drawing lines with markers…

The canvas they used was two sheets of paper towels cut into the shape of a rainbow…

The teacher put a sheet of wax paper under each paper towel rainbow shape so the rainbows could easily be picked up and set aside to dry after they were finished…

After the children finished drawing the lines of their rainbows – then they sprayed the lines with water from a small water bottle…

The children had a tendency to want to hold the water bottle right on top of the paper towel – so the teacher had to remind them to hold the water bottle up a bit. But this was to no avail – they really liked spraying the water as close to the rainbow as they could get:)

As the water landed on the paper towel – the colors of the rainbow began to spread out creating a tie dye effect…

This was a terrific activity and the children just couldn’t wait until they could take a turn to make their own rainbow!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'

The weather helper in preschool

Every morning after the children come to preschool, we settle into our morning group time and talk about the weather. It’s been interesting how much learning takes place and how much growth and development I have seem stem from this simple process of documenting and talking about the weather.
