     Facts About Rainbows | The Fact Site

     

    NATIONAL FIND A RAINBOW DAY!

    ROYGBIV!  No that is not alien chit chat.  That's the mnemonic phrase to help kids and adults, remember the sequence of colors in a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.  I've seen a double rainbow once in my life. I like to think that they are rare and I was super special to have witnessed such a spectacular sight.  I'm not sure if that's really true but I remember feeling super special that day and maybe even had super powers like speed talking ;).  Did you know that a rainbow is really a spectrum of light in the form of a multicolored arc, caused by both reflection and refraction of light in water droplets in the Earth’s atmosphere!  Yep, these beauties always appear directly opposite of the sun.  You can see rainbows more often then you think like rain, mist, spray, and dew.  Go visit this cool website for fun facts about rainbows: https://www.coolkidfacts.com/rainbow-facts/

     

    Happy Friday!  Next week starts our phase two of distance learning.  This is extremely important.... your child will need to use Seesaw. I have student passwords, I can get it to you! I will be sending all video instruction and classwork to their account.  If you are not checking it, you won't get the work. So please make sure you have the right account (distance learning) and let me know if you have problems.  I would love to get it all set and ready for Monday.  Thank you!!!!

     

    “This week’s Distance Learning activities are limited to math and special. 

    Please use the remainder of the time to catch up on activities pSaveosted during the previous two weeks. 

    Elementary teachers will be conducting conferences and planning new learning for next week’s launch of Phase 2 of the CB Distance Learning Plan.

    Thank you!”
