 Camping Literacy!







All summer long we've been saying "we should go camping."  Last week we organized a summer camping trip, just in time for National S'more Day, August 10th.  Of course, I created  a literacy pack to go with our theme.  Click below to take a peek!

Camping Vocabulary!

Camping Vocabulary! I added 12 vocab cards to help us get started.  We laminated the camping vocabulary cards so we could trace the words with dry erase markers, erase, and trace again!  You could also use them to go with your Camping units!

Camping Literacy!




Camping Booklet! This Camping booklet now features brand new clip art, fonts, and black and white version half pages saving you ink and paper!  Over the past week we have had a blast filling out, coloring, cutting/pasting, and putting together our camping booklet




Camping Math Centers!





Camping Math! Also included in the camping packet, an original counting and subtracting activity. This camping Subtracting & Adding activity is an active learning activity so students can actually feed a moose marshmallow manipulatives. This would be great for math centers / work stations to practice counting and subtracting!

S'more Play-Doh!


Materials Used:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
Up to 1.5 cups boiling water

First, we put all of our ingredients into a pot and then we stirred.  This was so easy and tons of fun!  Do you use play-doh in your classroom?
