"Cheryl, take the kids outside to see the double rainbow!"
Mom called, encouraged.
Out we went. Raindrops continued to fall.
Sun brilliantly overcoming wet shadows.
Children and I look up, mesmerized, awed!
Like a fresh watercolor. Radiant.
Learning moment launched.
"I want to make a rainbow!"
Pulling from my mind activity file, construction paper colors gathered. Glue found.
Together, thirty minutes, tearing paper-- fine motor strengthened--a colorful paper rainbow appeared.
"Mom, look what we created!"
A together moment. A learning moment.
And a rainbow gleaming through water droplets started the process.
