Kite Day

Last week we read the story The Kite: Days with Frog and Toad. To celebrate the last day before spring break (and to have a little fun), first grade had Kite Day at the end of Friday. Thursday night was full of rain and storms so I was afraid it might not happen. Friday however, was great weather! Many kids brought kites and I brought a few as well. We went outside and after I showed them quickly how to get their kite up and away, they were off! The wind wasn't too great; it kept coming in short spurts. Several kids got a few good runs in though! The first grade teachers quickly realized that there were too many of us out at once but it wasn't too bad. They all seemed to have lots of fun!
