Activities for children are measured as beginning learners, intermediate learners, and experienced learners. Each child learns at their own pace. By giving them opportunity to learn at the level they are able to understand, children will learn a concept with a positive approach. They will be eager to learn the next step as you scaffold each activity to fit their ability to learn each concept.
Children in my classroom enjoyed repeating the story and activities often. After reading Rainbow Fish for story time, I would put it in my classroom library for further reading opportunities. That old saying, “Practice makes perfect” has merit when it comes to reading skills and learning new concepts. So repeat the story and activities as often as the children are interested.
If a child was challenged with learning a concept and needed more practice, I would choose one of the activities and work with them one-on-one for about 2 minutes each day during free play until they mastered that particular concept.
I hope you find the curriculum easy to use and enjoyable for the children whether in a large classroom setting, small group of children, or with one child.
