Plus, I had a few printables I’d made of my own. You can view and download all of the printables I made for FREE here; as I made more than we used.
U Tracing-he traced with several different colors to make it look like a rainbow
U Poke Page-still a favorite with NJoy
Under the Umbrella Emergent Reader (we used the cut & paste version)
First, I pre-cut all the things needed to be glued in the book. I wrote out all the animal names on sentence strips. Together, we matched the word to the animal, listening for mainly the initial letter sound.
Then, we sang the Color Train Song by Dr. Jean as we spelled each word.

Rain on the Green Grass for the Pocket Chart:
I found this activity on Childcare Land. I used it to start working on numbers 11-20, so I printed off two sets of the number cards and he was to match the number on the other side of the rainbow.

Rain graphing–he used a cloud stamp to graph his results
Umbrella Water Coloring Craft– (we used blue do-a-dot paint for the rain)

This puzzle was a HUGE hit this week between NJoy and MBug. I couldn’t believe how long they played with it…without a single argument!
Discovery Toy’s “Bug Game” (this is NJoy’s name for the game)
Overall, we had a good and busy week back at school. Yay! Thanks for joining This Reading Mama on a literacy journey!
