Kite Day by Will Hillenbrand. Bear and Mole build a kite and take it out on a windy day, but when the weather suddenly turns stormy their kite provides shelter for baby birds.
Someone Bigger by Johnathan Emmett. Sam's dad says he is too small to fly their new kite, but when dad and the rest of the town's human and animal residents get pulled up into the air, only Sam can save them.
I took this prop idea straight from Meghan! She has an awesome blog!! Thank you for sharing =)
Our hero, Sam
Movement Song: "Sticky, Sticky Bubblegum"
Letter of the Day: Kk for kangaroo and kite
Caregivers, it's fun to play games with words and sounds like we did in storytime today. Try giving your child the ending sound/s of words and letting them add the "Kk" sound to the beginning to figure out the words.
Flannel: "Hooray for Springtime!"
Activity: Make a rainstorm using your hands!
Since we had thunder and rainstorms in our flannel activity and in Kite Day, we simulated a rainstorm using only our hands in an activity like this http://bronxriver.org/puma/images/usersubmitted/file/015_CreateARainstorm.pdf
