Challenge09 #7 – Shades of Color


Our blog challenge this week is to write about colors.  Having exactly seven kids in our class, we decided that the colors of the rainbow would be the perfect thing to write about.  After reading Planting a Rainbow,  the kids chose their favorite color of the rainbow and used that color to make an acrostic poem.

If you have a picture of a rainbow and would like to share it with us, email it to [email protected] or [email protected].  Whatever pictures we receive, we will post them along with your school’s name in a slide show!

In the meantime, please enjoy our students’ acrostic poetry created as participants in the 2009 Blog Challenge hosted by Mrs. Wyatt and Sue Waters, The Edublogger.

At the End of YOUR Rainbow

What treasure lies at the end of your rainbow?

What treasure lies at the end of your rainbow?

People seem to be fascinated by rainbows. It has become evident in all the Myths and Legends that have surrounded their timely appearances, and perhaps it is never more obvious than during the month of March when we celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day. One of the many legends that exist claim that leprechauns hide their pots of gold at the end of the rainbow, and if you can catch a leprechaun, he must lead you to his treasure.  Well, I don’t believe any of us will ever catch a leprechaun or lay claim to his pot of gold, but we all have treasures that we value.  So, if I could follow YOUR personal rainbow to its very end, what treasure would you have hidden there?
