Grow with the Rainbow of Wonderful Wishes for Life

Jenipher Lyn's Find Your Rainbow makes a great read for ages 8-12 who are engaged in self-discovery and looking for ways to find their dreams as they navigate growing up in today's world. Our current society has made a lot of progress in in developing girl-power activities to help young girls develop in a positive way. Young girls want to develop confidence, make new friends, and even begin to discover what they would like to do when they grow up in a satisfying career. Each chapter presents an idea for self-discovery and an activity to engage in by writing and drawing ideas for the concept. Chapter One is a great place to start with the idea of believing in yourself. Girls are invited to make two lists of things that hide their true self to others and things that reveal one's true self to others. Lyn includes a chapter on using social media in a constructive way. The chapter that includes activities for creating bully-free zones in life situations is highly relevant in today's world that children find themselves in. Young readers are invited to write a note to a bully to let them know how you feel about being bullied. Lyn includes a section to compare sadness vs. depression. Young readers are invited to write thoughts about things that make them sad and differentiate between the feelings that are sad in a temporary way and those that last longer as a depressed thought. The chapter on gratitude is of special interest. Children can learn to express gratitude as they grow that makes a lasting impression throughout life. Young readers are invited to create a gratitude journal. The final activity is the opportunity to dream big and record your life dreams in the clouds.

Find Your Rainbow is a creative read and also can be used to encourage children to create a diary. Jenipher Lyn's new book was published by Crown Books for Young Readers, a division of Random House Children's Books and Penguin/Random House LLC. It is recommended for ages 8-12. It has an ISBN of 9781524718503.

Bring Find Your Rainbow into the Classroom for Fun Writing Activties

Teachers who teach language arts classes for ages 8-12 will want to bring Jenipher Lyn's new book Find Your Rainbow into the classroom for a wealth of writing projects. Writing offers the opportunity for children to express their ideas in creative and personal ways. Writing and drawing activities encourage children to express their feelings in a positive way. Lyn includes a wealth of writing ideas in the form of lists, comparisons, and drawing ideas instead of writing. Find Your Rainbow also encourages young writers to keep a diary. I especially like the activity that is included for children to create a "Mood Board" by drawing things that inspire them or creating a collage with magazine pictures that make them happy.

*Introduce the book in a group reading session. Read the book as a chapter book to call attention to the variety of activities.

*Choose one activity per week to offer the students an opportunity to write or draw their response to the activity. Find Your Rainbow can be used through the entire school year for writing activities.

*Bring cooking into the classroom when you use the activity that offers the opportunity for students to brainstorm about healthy food . Students can use the Recipe Card to create a recipe for healthy after-school snacks.

*Use the included vocabulary activities to encourage students to learn and use new words. Lyn includes creative mazes for vocabulary use and an activity for choosing words that describe oneself.

*You might want to use the activity for creating a "Yay Jar" for the classroom. Students are invited to write ideas of wonderful memories on a slip of paper each day that happened in the classroom. This is a fun idea to share with classmates at the end of the school year.
