Letter of The Week

Kite k

Alphabet Craft

Kite K is a very classic letter of the week activity, not my most creative but my son enjoyed it. We decided on it because the wind has been strong and even caused some power outages last week in our area. So we talked all about it and when deciding on a letter craft to make settled on Kite k! If you want to make this activity last longer you can add bows along the strings, and wind swirls on the blue paper! Don’t forget to take the time when you are making this to brainstorm K words with your child. Ours this week were Key, Kick and Kitten.

Books About Wind

The Very Windy Day

The Very Windy Day by Elizabeth MacDonald is a funny story about how everyone walking on North, South , East and West streets had their belongings mixed up by the wind! Hats , blankets and even food gets passed along from one person to the next in this silly story about a windy day. My son was entertained by this book but didn’t ask to read it again after our initial reading.
HowLadiesStoppedWind
How the Ladies Stopped the Wind by Bruce McMillan is a charming story that is reminiscent of a folk tale, about ladies in Iceland ( with the help of their trusty chickens)  who decide to plant trees to stop the wind. Unfortunately it’s not as easy as just planting some trees as they soon discover.  There is some fantastic bits of humor for parents and amazing illustrations! This was a great library find that I laughed my way through.
