Students started and ended each day with Campfire where we sang songs and talked about the day. Then students went to small groups for Reading and Writing. In Reading students read about different Birthday Celebrations around the world. In Writing students wrote fictional stories with a birthday party as the setting. We all came together for Snack and Art. This week's art projects were The Princess and the Pea and Robots. On Friday our special snack was roasting marshmallows to make S'mores!! Yummy!!!
Week Two followed the same format as Week One but with the theme of Dinosaurs. Students started and ended each day with Campfire. In Reading students learned about extinction theories, extreme dinosaur features and the life of a paleontologist. In Writing students wrote non-fiction reports about a fictional dinosaur. This week's art projects were One Point Perspective: Then and Now and Dinosaur Chalk Art. On Friday we made S'mores again! Double yummy!!!
I was so fortunate to have such a dedicated work force that made this camp possible: Lupe and Rosa were my camp partners--they handled Reading while I focused on Writing.
We had eight high school volunteers who gave up part of their summer to support our students. And we had three moms (mine included!) who came to help with snack and clean up.
