Happy  Schedulin’ Sunday!    This week’s Schedulin Sunday is coming to at 11:30 pm on Saturday night!  True story!   So if it’s short or if you see any mistakes, it’s because it’s about 2 hours past my bedtime. Don’t judge!   I’m super excited about the next two weeks (not because it’s the last two weeks….I don’t want this year to end because this group of kids is amazing!!) because we’re going camping!  I am pumped to do our first camping unit!!!!

Camping Research

We will be using my soon to be released Camping Research Project to learn and write about camping!   We will make anchor charts about camping and write about camping.  The students will label a camper and we will do camping crafts.  And yes, our classroom will become Camp:  Mustache!

There are no pictures because this a new unit or theme for us!   But here’s what he have planned:

handprint fire art project (brown paper logs and orange, red and yellow handprints for fire)

S’mores sequencing and writing

S’mores craft

Tent craft (make a tent and put picture of students inside)

You can’t go camping without making s’mores!   We will use graham crackers, marshmallow fluff and a Hershey bar to make s’mores!

Camping Books

For Mad Science, we’re doing Soda Science!
