To motivate your child
to learn their letters/sounds, sight
words, or to learn to spell those important high frequency words, our class will be using a fun system called "Rainbow
Words." You can follow this
link to the website to learn more details.
I have adjusted this
fun motivational approach to better meet the needs of all of my students.
All children will have a Rainbow Color Group to work on but some children
may be working on learning their letters and sounds, some will be working on
learning their sight words, and some will be working on spelling their
There are six groups
of words or letters/sounds one group for each color of the rainbow. When your child is
able to read or spell all of the words in a color, they will receive an award
certificate for that color group and will add that color raindrop to their
clouds. Their individual clouds are kept in their F.R.O.G. binders and
are for you and your child to see. Not all children are working on the
same level or skills or are progressing at the same pace because of this I
prefer for this information to remain private for each individual child and
not displayed openly in the classroom.
