This makes for a cute bulletin board at the beginning of the year. The kids set a goal and write or illustrate it on the kite, put the steps on the ties, and tape a string to the bottom of the kite, add the ties and voila! You've got a great bulletin board and the kids have put their goals in writing!
I love being a third and fourth grade split-level teacher! This is my fourth year teaching 3/4 after teaching preschool. Most of my students are Dyslexic/ADHD and I teach math and language remediation classes for all grades.
