This morning I arrived early to finalize last minute details for Camping with Books. While awaiting the kids arrival, I decided to lock the classroom door, cover the window with paper, and build anticipation for our thematic unit. Several teachers popped in through the office door to explain that the kids were about to burst with excitement over the unveiling. As we created ground rules, the kids looked like they were painfully being punished and awaitig their removal from time out to play.
We completed a full rotation through our thematic work stations: observing and identifying the different parts of a ladybug, reading in the tents, creating a camp journal post in the rafts, adding words, playing bug off (Free TpT item), reading along at the listening log, working on strategies with Kindergylnn's Dial a Word, creating campfire stories, reflex math on the computers, and designing insect crafts for our camp mural.
|This story is looking a little intense!|
I'm anticipating another fabulous round a thematic learning tomorrow. We will have our end of the year awards ceremony in the afternoon and end with trail mix and an insect video from Discovery's Life series.
