The Rainbow Fish is one of my childhood favorites! This book would be a perfect read aloud to K-2nd grade. It is sure to catch the attention of our students with the fish's shimmery scales. This book is about a beautiful fish who learns that you must be nice and share with others for them to be your friend. This is such a great message to get across to our little ones at an early age! One activity to do with The Rainbow Fish could be to name other adjectives for the rainbow fish. The class could do this together on the board! There are also many art activities to do with this book as well. For example, painting or coloring a fish of their own would be cute to do! The teacher could also do a bulletin board and display the students' artwork.
