The Wind Blew is an easy reader with 4 on a page to conserve on paper when you print.

This also helps reinforce sequencing when students cut the pages apart and put their booklets together.

The end of the story allows students to think of their own “thing” that the wind blows, write it down and illustrate their page accordingly.

When everyone is done with their booklets have students share this page with the class and write down how many things they thought of that the wind blew.

Pat Hutchins has a cute book When The Wind Blew that would make a nice transition activity. {amazonWS:itemId=068971744X}

The last page allows you to nail another core standard by asking students if they like when the wind blows.  A graphing extension is provided for that.  Discussion can follow of why a student does or doesn’t.

Make this a special keepsake by having students glue their school photo to the boy or girl face on the last page.

To reinforce reading and writing skills, students trace the shape words as well.

Is another easy reader that reviews simple subtraction skills.

Students trace and solve the equations X-ing out a kite as they go.

Discussion of what else could have happened to the kites can stimulate a writing prompt and nice transition to another activity.
