My room: I hung bulletin board paper from the ceiling! Next year, I plan to tie a string along the beam up there and drape the paper over it for "ease" of setting up.
Next up-we made "s'mores." Since we can't have food----I remembered my son's preschool craft of s'mores. I cut 3in squares out of a cardboard box (it worked in the paper cutter!!!), brown squares out of construction paper a little bit bigger and I gave the kids 4-5 cotton balls. BUT FIRST! As I was passing out the cotton ball marshmallows...... the thought came to me! ROAST them! I had a campfire at each table. We took the cotton ball and attached it to our pencil points and "roasted!"
The giggles were priceless!
Then we did a few pages from my camping IN unit (on TPT)
We continued with more from my unit and they kept these in their "camping folders" (brown construction paper folded). We took another break to read some Charlotte and came back to our seats to make binoculars! I L.O.V.E. the duck tape that's out there! We decorated toilet paper rolls with DUCK TAPE!!! I am SO mad that I did not get a close up of THAT cuteness! You'll have to scroll down a little to see how we used them in the afternoon-and you can see how cute they were! ;)
Then the kiddos took a break to read. We spread out over the room on blankets and sleeping bags, turned out the lights and they read with flashlights!
Then we had our normal, recess/lunch/specials time....
In the afternoon we took a "nature" hike around school looking for the ABC's of nature! We of course couldn't do this without our binoculars!
We had such a great day! I'm a little sad that I'm out tomorrow for an all day long writing meeting. I planned Charlotte's Web stuff. I uploaded what I made to TPT also, if you are in need of some quick things to do for a day (or longer) with it! Click on the picture to read about it!
Also-I just wanted to let you know that I broke up my Common Core Checklists by Language Arts and Math, incase you were interested in only part of it because you only teach a certain subject. I had a request to make 3rd grade so I will be looking to do that in the near future too! As of right now I have Kindergarten, First and Second Grades posted! Thanks for the great feedback so far!
Have a great week!
