A Streamer Rainbow--printable directions and communication board

Let's get ready for spring!   In one week, the grass started growing, flowers began blooming, birds were gathering twigs for nests, and everyone dug out their spring wardrobes.  This is a great time of year to make "Streamer Rainbows" (I got the idea here from Mom's Crafty Space.)  Here are the visual directions developed on the iPad using Pictello.  Pictello is a great iPad app and if you are curious to how I've used it in the past, check this out.

This activity is great for following sequenced directions, requesting materials, and commenting.  I also showed a Rainbow Song YouTube video to start, and on a subsequent post will share a Rainbow book that I downloaded and created icons for.  Those of you who are therapists can share with teachers and parents! It doesn't hurt kids to have the same lesson presented by two different people.  They might learn the language more in depth.

  1. This rocks rocks rock! I can't wait to use it!

  2. I'm not waiting until spring! The Life Skills classroom is talking about things in the sky these next 2 weeks, so this is a perfect speech therapy activity! Thanks!
