A Writer’s Playground–a place to find wordplay, writing prompts, reasons to celebrate, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart “K” is for Kites, Kool-Aid, and a Kettle for Hot Tea” by Linda Martin Andersen
This month I’m sharing photos and blog posts from A-Z. I’m excited about trying something new. I hope you’ll stop by often throughout the month.
Check out the participants for the April (2016) Challenge. There are plenty to choose from http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/
K is for Kites
- I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Each cover of their professional magazine, The Bulletin, is illustrated with a kite. I don’t have permission to include a photo, so here’s an embroidered kite that hangs on my wall.
My friend and poet, Joy Acey, has several poems about kites on her blog. See here:
- When my children were little, they loved Curious George. One of their favorite stories was Curious George Flies a Kite by Margret Rey and H.A. Ray. I have an old copy of this book with a copyright of 1958. For a partial reading of the book, listen here:
- When was the last time you flew a kite? Who were you with? Did your kite soar, dip, or crash? At the walking park near us, people can be seen flying kites. Maybe I’ll get a photo to share for another time.
K is for Kool-Aid
Have you ever mixed a pitcher of Kool-Aid to serve? Write or tell about that time.
Can you finish this tune?
Kool-Aid, Kool-Aid tastes great…
K is for Kettle for Hot Tea
Do you or your family own a kettle for hot tea? I used to but I don’t any more. Do you drink hot tea? Do you know the song “Polly Put the Kettle on?” Listen here:
What “K” words come to mind for you? I hope you’ll share why they’re special to you.
