March Family Project
The 'Tail' of the Kite (Due Monday, March 4th) 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 or 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...)
Kites will be flying high in the hallway outside our classroom! As always, I hope that you enjoy this time with your child!
