In the 4 triangles you have created, label them: Characters, Setting, Problem, and Solution. Use ribbon or yarn to give your kite a “tail”. Add paper bows and write important words from the story that you learned. You will fill the characters, setting, problem, solution, and words learned with information from this weeks story. I will send a picture of what it should look like.
