*Rainbow Names*

To end our week of color reviews, I decided to have the kids make rainbow names!
I first saw this idea a while back on Pinterest.  I then saw it first-hand in Vegas this summer when I sat in on Deanna Jump's session.  She explained how she did rainbow names in her classroom and then showed examples.  All of her names looked so cute and I knew I had to try it this year!
I am so glad that I decided to do it with my kiddos because it turned out so stinkin' cute!
I first cut big pieces of white construction paper in half so that they were long and skinny.
I wrote each child's name on the paper, with a black Sharpie, being sure to leave room between each letter (so that if the torn colored paper was too big, it wouldn't run into the next letter of their name.)  I then took colored construction paper and tore it into big pieces.  (When you do it, be sure to only use the colors of the rainbow so that they are true rainbow names!) I put the colors in piles and it was the child's responsibility to come up and grab the color they needed. 
We reviewed the order of the colors of the rainbow. I wrote them on the board too so that they could refer to them if needed! 
These were the final CUTE results!!!

Aren't they just adorable? 
They will look awesome when I display them all together!

  2. I do this on black and it looks super cute. I use it as the border to my word wall and leave it up all year. The kids did a great job this year.

    1. Yes, I think when I display them all together I am going to use black paper as the backdrop! Black will make them pop!
