Children love to fly kites. Let’s tell a story about a day flying kites!
Read the book: “Stuck” by Oliver Jeffers
Tell the children that they are going to draw a picture of what happened to the kite. Who was there, what happened, where it happened?
Have the children tell you about their picture, write it down at the bottom of the page.
On day two: Read the story back to the child, and read “and then”, turn the page and have the children draw and tell you about another adventure.Do the same for day three.
Any day at the ocean, kites are flying.

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.
