Camping in and out of the classroom

There is no way that it's already almost July!  Where did May and June go??  The summer is going way too fast and before we know will be starting again. 

The last few weeks in our classroom we have been studying the topic of camping.  With this comes soo many fun things to do.  We have had fun talking about our own personal camping trips and sharing stories and pictures.  There are some really cute stories the kiddos come up with. 

Some of the highlights so far from our unit have been...

S'more collages

the book "A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee" (this was a very popular favorite of the kids)
made jello ponds inside of an orange with gummy critters inside,
marshmallow painting
we made a graph asking 'When You Go Camping..." and the children had to choose do they stay in a tent or in a camper?
each child go to make their own 'mini-campfire' out of twigs they collected from the brush pile we had outside our center
Those were some of the highlights from the past couple of weeks as we have been studying 'camping.'

Inbetween all of that we have had other fun and exciting things happening such as field trips, and special days at our center.

We got to go to Summit Park one day, go see the cheerleaders on campus during their camp, tend to our garden, Literacy Groups, a visit from the sno cone truck, and plenty of water play days!

Other than all of these things going on, we have all the regular day-to-day things.  Wow!!  We have definitely been busy!

As we move into the new month we will continue our study of camping with a little interruption to celebrate the freedom of our country and a little study about patriotism and some fun 4th of July activities. 

I am looking forward to the holiday as I will be joining one of my greatest friends and her family for a camping trip to Fall River Lake!  WootWoot!

I hope you all have had a wonderful summer so far!  I know I have....but just can't seem to figure out where it has gone thus far.

Take Care - God Bless!
