The Whole Rainbow

We had a great time in Kindergarten today! We read the poem “Green” by a 4th grade student named Malik and then went on an adventure through the rainbow. We stopped at different colors to think about how they made us feel and what they made us remember.  We worked on streeeeeeetching our ideas today and adding more detail. We wrote a poem as a class about the color blue, and then all of the students contributed one line to a poem about the rainbow.


Blue is sitting on a blue

carpet. Blue is driving

a blue car. Blue is sleeping

in a cozy bed and eating a sour

blueberry. Blue is drinking

a Grimace Shake that tastes

like Grimace! Blue is cold like blue

winter snow. Blue is tears falling from

our eyes.


The Rainbow

Blue is playing at a blue park with the biggest gazillion slide.

Blue is playing at a playground.

Purple is snowflakes falling and then I play with them.

Lots of colors are a crazy slide that makes you scared.

Rainbow is eating rainbow peppers and they are so spicy.

Rainbow is the color in the summer that makes me freezing when I touch it in a dream.

Purple is a Grimace Shake that tastes sweet.

A rainbow is a cupcake that tastes really good.

Red is a red pig.

Pink is Pinkalicious.

Red is looking at an apple and an apple is my favorite fruit.

Purple is a Grimace Shake.

Red is red eyes.

Red is a person who is angry.

Purple is a grape that is sweet and yummy.

Blue is a happy face.

Green is a slithering snake.

Yellow is the hot sun.

Black is a man walking and his home is in front of him.

Orange is a yummy cupcake with sprinkles.

Pink is a floating balloon going high, high, high in the sky.

Blue is a blue bird flying to the ice cream shop.

Red is a crunchy apple, when you bite it your tooth can fall out.
