“Jennie! Come quick! There’s a rainbow in the bathroom.”
What a surprise.
Everyone clamored into the bathroom
for a look, to put their hands onto the rainbow.
The rainbow miraculously appeared on little hands.
Sometimes wonder needs no words.
The sun was starting to come into the classroom.
Children decided to build with colored translucent blocks,
hoping to get a rainbow.
The colors were beautiful.
Look carefully, as ‘people’ are appearing
tucked away into every corner.
They’re the rainbow makers.
After snack the sunlight moved and streaked across the floor.
One of the colored blocks was on the floor, the red one,
and the floor was colored in red.
“Let’s make our own rainbow! Everyone, grab a block
and put it on the floor in the sunlight.”
Did you know that a silent smile is more powerful than
a loud applause?

Exactly! Best to you, Pete.
What a wonderful experience. I love the way you let their interests and imaginations rule the day. You’re the best, Jennie.
I can’t imagine teaching any other way. Thank you so much, Dan.
There is just something about rainbows that makes everyone happy. Love this.
Yes, there is! Happiness-101. I’m so glad you loved this, Darlene.
Everybody should begin chasing rainbows at an early age.
It’s moments like this when photographers are born. Beginning to understand light and how it acts is critical to taking a great shot.
I understand. I was trying to get the photo that my eye was acutely seeing. I suppose that is the classic drive of a photographer. I’ve captured some good ones, but I’m frustrated when my iPhone doesn’t see what I see. Rainbows are a wonderful challenge.
Ah, simply sugar sweet!!! Lovely.
The magic of rainbows!
How fun and magical!
Yes! Thank you, Deborah.
Rainbow connections… Wonderful!
Thank you, Bette!
Just lovely, Jennie. 🙂
Thank you, Diana!
Children see the wonder that is right in front of us, like rainbows.
Yes, they do!
Wonderful words and photos, Jennie. A perfect song to accompany them as well. Silent smiles are here every time Kermit plays that tune!
Thank you, Wayne. I feel the same way.
How adorable. Thanks for sharing.
My pleasure, John. Thank you!
nothing like the sense of wonder. I still have to go outside whenever someone tells me there is a rainbow. there is something magical about them. Great song from Kermit…
I head straight outside, too. I think they bring magic to everyone. I love Kermit’s song! Many thanks, Jim.
On a side note, I’m not always able to read my fellow bloggers posts within a day or two. You often close your comments after a few days, and I feel terrible that I can’t tell you how wonderful your post was. Please know I read everything you write!
no worries about reading my blog! I’ve taken a bit of a break from writing, and so I turned off comments as well. But it does feel good to be at least back reading other bloggers’ posts!
Thanks, Jim. I just wanted you to know I read your posts…and now I feel better. 🙂 Writing, reading and blogging all seem to ebb and flow at times. Best to you!
Natural learning, perfect. I love how you take every possible moment for your students to discover, Jennie.
Thank you, Carla. With children there are many moments.😍
I can feel the kids’ excitement from what must have seemed like a magical moment.
I’m glad you can feel it, too!
magic at work here! wonderful rainbow/light experience!
Thank you, Beth. You understand magic. ❤️
I’m quite clear that a silent smile is much more important than loud applause. And that rainbows are where you find them. A sweet post, this one.
Hear, hear! Thank you, Ally.
Lovely post! Your students must have had such a wondrous time!
Thank you, Chaya!
Amazing what children can do on their own.
Gorgeous! There’s nothing to match a child’s sense of wonder. Kermit is pretty cool too.
Yes! And, yes! 😀
Ahh, who doesn’t love a rainbow. ❤
How delightful! 🙂
No surprise that you are a rainbow maker, Jennie. What an inspiration you are to both all around you. xo
Sorry. Nix both in the sentence above. LOL
That is so nice. Thank you! 🥰
