  • paper
  • crayons, colored pencil, markers, and/or paints and paintbrushes


Prepare a sample and assemble the materials.


  • Rainbow Writing:  Ask the students to rainbow write their weekly words by making each letter of a word a different color.  You may have them do this one or more times for each word.  As a variation, you may wish to have them color the vowels one color and the consonants another color.
  • Rainbow Painting:  This activity is the same as rainbow writing except the students use paints and brushes or finger paints instead.  Display the painted words on the word wall for the week.
  • Rainbow Shapes:  Have the students draw around the shape of each word, following the ascending and descending letters.  The students should then repeat this procedure several times, using a different color each time.


Display the completed rainbow activities.  Store the pencil, crayons, paints, and paintbrushes in their appropriate containers.
