"Color Your Rainbow" is a system of positive reinforcement I have successfully used in my classroom. It works like a sticker chart but way cooler and interactive. Children can earn their Rainbow colors and start to construct their very own Rainbow. I use it to reinforce positive behavior. For example if a child sits quietly during story time they can "color their rainbow". Each Rainbow consist of 5 colors that go in rainbow order and size: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue. When the Rainbow is completed the teacher could implement some special reward or treat. Children learn their colors and the Rainbow color order. They also can become more independent throughout the school year as they will learn by color and size which color comes next in the order. Children get hands on and get to add a color themselves which is always rewarding. This provides a child with a physical reminder of some of the accomplishments they have made as well as sets a goal for them to complete. I display my Rainbows on the back door to my classroom. They are at child level and each child wrote their name in Rainbow colors on an index card that designates the space their Rainbow is to be built. The Red layer of the Rainbow stays on the door and the children add the orange, yellow, green, and blue. I use Velcro so that these can be easily placed on and taken off. My children have really enjoyed this and so have I. Sometimes I will give a direction to the class and if I see the class is not very focused at the moment I will say "Who is going to color their Rainbow by going and sitting quietly on the carpet?" This usually perks up some ears and encourages positive behavior in my classroom. You could use this system in many other ways like turning in reading logs or completing level books. It is a colorful way to display positivity in a classroom and can be re-used over and over again (unlike stickers). Each Rainbow piece is laminated.
