March Rainbows

With spring officially around the corner we needed to brighten up our room a little.  What a better way to do that then to make Name Rainbows!

The idea is pretty simple-the students write their name in the cloud and then the rainbow is made by using an adjective to describe each letter of their name.  It gets a little tricky for some of the letters so usually after about 5 minutes I help them out by looking up some good describing words online.  
There is a pre-writing sheet that I use below.  After doing this activity without a sheet one year, I realized that having the students organize their name/words ahead of time REALLY helped :-)
