This is calendar contains excellent activities to extend your student's learning at home!
Here are the take home project instructions:
The 'Tail' of the Kite
Animals have tails. Shirts have tails, people can even wear ponytails! But, do kites have tails? Of course! Your child is bringing home a shape of a typical kite. Please have him/her carefully cut out the kite. Then, as a family, work to turn this dull white kite into....
a beautiful kite with a design of their choice and a long patterned tail.
(Sample ideas are listed, but you and your child may have better ones!)
• paint it
• fill it in with torn construction paper
• make a design or picture with tissue paper
• create a collage using just animal pictures, foods, or letters from magazines
an animal of your child's choice that has a tail.
(maybe a monkey or a cat with a long tail, a bunny with a cotton tail, etc...)
Students will be sharing their projects with their classmates. Then we will hang them in our classroom and let them 'fly.'
As always, I hope that you enjoy this time with your child!
