Educators: Make a reading kite

A fun activity for a parent-child workshop this month might be kite-making. But rather than making kites to fly outside, parents and their children can make reading kites. All they need is colored construction paper and some yarn.

For each book they read this month, children can add another “tail” to their kite. The tail should include the book’s title and author. Parents should be encouraged to put the kite where everyone can see it. At the end of the month, offer small rewards (perhaps real kites) to the students who have read the most books.
