Kite Building Fun and Flight

It is so hard for me to believe that summer is here, the year went by so quickly for me. I've taken so many pictures this year but haven't had the time to post them so here we go.

My class was lucky enough to participate in a local STEM program that provided materials so each of the students would learn about flight, aeronautics, and how to build their own kites. They had the absolute BEST time creating their kites and even more fun when they took them outside and flew them! The best moment for me was when one of my students said, "This is the first time I have ever flown a kite and what makes it the best day ever is that I made the kite myself!" What a huge win for him and an enormous win for me!

The last picture shows one of my kiddo's who moved to the United States from a South American country. Her father was killed while she walked along side of him. There is a beam of light shining down on her in this picture. That beam of light only appears in the pictures with her in them. She and the other students in class believe it is her father letting her know he is watching over her. I hope they are right.
