We have been reading The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. This book inspired us to make our own rainbow fish this morning out of paper plates. First, I cut out a triangle to form the mouth of the fish. Grace helped me tape the triangle pieces to the opposite side of the paper plates to create the tails of the fish. Next, Grace and Jack painted their fish plates turquoise. While we were waiting for the paint to dry, Jack took a nap and Grace cut out small pieces of construction paper to make fish scales. Grace and Jack then glued the colored scales on their fish. They used tinfoil to create the shiny scales, just like the rainbow fish in Pfister's book!
