    We just had a fantastic first grade kite day. We read books about kites all week. We sent notes home about each child needing a kite already assembled and also inviting parents to come and fly the kite with their child. A great book is Gail Gibbons "Catch the Wind". This explains the history and everything else kids need to know about kites. We went out the last 45 minutes of the day and it was great. The next day we wrote about the experience. Some classes wrote how-to with order words. Some wrote cinquain poems, five line poems with adjectives, verbs and a sentence. It was a good experience. In May we are going to have a bubble day.
