under the rainbow.

Standard

my classroom is chock full of

multi-age kinder (3s-young 5s)

who stay with us for two years.

one of the very best things

is watching the older kinder

who were the younger kinder

just one year before

as they quite naturally and organically grow

to become the leaders/teachers/helpers/mentors

to the new group of younger kinder

who were at home

just one year before.

what a joy it was to watch someone older

spend a very long time

finding all the special markers she needed

to create an easy to see linear rainbow

for someone younger

who wanted to create

her very own rainbow picture

in her very own style

using all the special colors.

judging by their faces

when she finished her very own rainbow

they were both equally proud of the results.

“look at the rainbow, it is made up of different colors, yet they do not split,

because they know how beautiful they are when they stick together.”

“two bubbles found they had rainbows on their curves. 

they flickered out saying: 

“It was worth being a bubble, just to have held that rainbow thirty seconds.”
