Bring a thing that flies in the wind.

Topic: Kites

Understand and enjoy the wind

The value we’ll be studying is peace. To be peaceful is to be calm, and we’ll practice belly breathing to calm ourselves.

For science, we’ll learn what makes the wind blow.

Outside, we’ll do a windy day hike and focus on the effects of wind.

The songs we’ll be singing are Let’s Go Fly a Kite, You Are My Sunshine, Tomorrow, Mr. Sun, and Oh, What a Beautiful Morning.

For creative dramatics, we’ll move like kites.

Our art activities will be pinwheels, 3-D kites, wind friends, and making a kite.

For motor development we’ll work on coordination with pivoting, hopping, and leaping. For postural response, we’ll play bridges, crab walks, hopping, and walk a tightrope.
