This month’s theme is Rhyme Time, and one of our favourite rhyming books is Lift the Flap- Colours by Smriti Prasadam-Halls. This book teaches little ones all about rhyming AND colours at the same time… what could be better? To celebrate, we’ve included a great little beyond the book activity about rainbows – the Rainbow Song and accompanying game!
The Rainbow Song (also known as “I can sing a rainbow”) is a easy song that helps children learn and remember the different colours. There are many variations of this song, but we’ve included those that align to this cute YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7tSN-WH96E
A great accompanying activity is learning the Australian Sign Language (Auslan) symbols for the different colours. Download and print out our signing guide + the lyrics to the Rainbow Song here: The Rainbow Song
