Spring is here! Let's grab our kites and fly them high on a windy day!

In this Spring file, there are two writing ideas using kites!

If you are looking for a fun way to teach the figure of speech: Simile, then this is the activity for you! It takes a fun activity like flying a kite, and compares things to it that move the same way. First, we pick a windy day to take a kite outside on the playground and fly it. As it is up in the sky, we talk about what it is doing as it moves. Then, we come back into the classroom to read the slides: "A Kite is Like..." We discuss how each of the things are "like" a kite! Next, the kids can use the sentence starter and word/picture cards to add to a pocket chart and read. Later, they can create one of the fun activities in this file to complete. They can make a kite and draw/write on it about what a kite is like. Or they can do one of the flip books included to draw/write about several things they can compare a kite to. Springrific Fun!

The other kite writing in this file is a creative writing activity to do by using their time order words and write about things that happen on a windy day! We read the books: Like a Windy Day or The Wind Blew to get ideas of things that blow around on a windy day. If it is windy outside, you can go out to observe what blows around in the wind! Look at the pictures to see the cute kite book that the kids can make with their writing!
