We've been busy camping these last two weeks! In a previous post I had shared my Camping Phonological Awareness activities with you! Today I wanted to share what else we got into! I've included some amazon affiliate links for your convenience.




A few weeks ago at Goodwill I found this awesome kids campfire log. You can find it on amazon at the link below. We had a blast playing with it! It even lights up and the flame moves!




We made several campfire crafts!

 First we made these handprint fires, as seen on Tippy Toe. Instead of using construction paper we gathered real sticks!



We also made some great campfire hats, found from Education.com. Our kiddos loved wearing them! I wish I could show you our class picture with them, but a goofy selfie of me will have to do! Just make a 'log' headband, add flames and marshmallows on sticks!



'cheetah'

'bunny'

Our last craft was some Leaf Art! Did you guess that animals they made?


We read a lot of different camping books this week. I'm going to share my 3 favorites.



 A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee is such an adorable book. It's full of rhyme and had my kids so engaged! Lots of opportunity for inferencing with this one!


Scare a Bear is a sweet little rhyming book about a bear who joins a campsite! How will you scare that bear away?!


Into the Outdoors is a wonderful book for working on preposition words. Each page highlights a preposition word as the story is described.



Here is a peek at some of our other library books!

Our literacy stations used a lot of activities from my phonological awareness packet. My favorite have been these self checking syllable segmenting cards.




I snagged this butterfly house that looked like a mini-tent to pull our cards from! 


Check out this video of one of my kiddos working on the skill!

These students are sorting sounds by their initial sound (/s/ and /f/) from my camping phonological awareness unit. 



These kiddos are using a freebie from Primary Possibilities for identifying beginning sounds! 

You might also want to grab this 'How to Make S'mores' Emergent reader.

Then of course make some gooey s'mores!


 To finish out the week we went on a nature walk outside looking for items that start with each letter of the alphabet! 



Time to enter our giveaways.  You can enter all three giveaways every day this week.  The winners will be chosen on Friday the 4th (Oct 4, 2012 was the day of our very first post at Twin Sisters Speech & Language Therapy).  Thanks for reading the guest post today and for entering the giveaways.  Best of luck!
