Get Ready for March-- with this free kites book

There is a lot of sadness in Chapel Hill right now. 

The part of my day which is still happy though is when I work with the kids, who are blissfully unaware of thoughtless, maniacal violence.  So, in honor of the kids, I'm posting a free book of kite flying.   I used to have a similar kites book up on the blog, but took it down to change out the images.  You may notice with this book that the photographer is credited on every picture.  This is because I downloaded these from a wonderful website---Photos for Class.  For me it's a dream come true---I want to use images legally and I want to give credit where credit is due.  This site takes care of that for those materials I give away free for students and teachers to use in a school.

Here's the book.  Icons for making it interactive are on the last page.  A sentence strip is also there, for kids who need that structure when reading each page.

I used SmartySymbols for this book since I have a commercial license.  It's a nice alternative to what I was using before.  


Mary Poppins scene "Let's Go Fly a Kite".  Do you ever fly kites with your students?
