Instructions: As the children learn a letter, attach that letter to the tail of the kite. Display the kite low enough for children to see, and use.
Extension Activity 1: Find pictures of items that match the letters. Cut them out and glue to clothespins. Put them in a basket below the kite and letters and let the children put the clothespin next to the letter.
Extension Activity 2: Have each child decorate a kite. Help them attach a 3 foot long tail out of ribbon or twine.
Instructions: Place a large kite on the table.
Have the children choose a number card. Then help the children to count out the number of kites that match the number card. Place the small kites on the large kite. Repeat with another large kite.
Extension Activity: Instead of using number cards, use dice or dominoes.
