A Camping We Will Go!

We started our camping theme last week.  Here are some of the fun things we have been doing.  During circle time our little learners "went fishing" with shapes. They chose a shape card by picking it up with a magnet attached to a stick fishing pole.  They matched the shape fish picture with the same shape fishing pole picture.
During learning time, our sweeties hid in a sleeping bag pretending to sleep while a "bear" visited the campsite and stole a camping related object.  The little learners had to tell us what was missing.  
We also took turns getting in a small pop up tent with the light off in our room.  Ellison shapes cut from black construction paper were held up to the tent.  We used a flashlight to shine on the cut out.  Each learner had to guess from the shadow what the object was.  There were lots of giggles.  Everyone has been loving the fun.
Today we made the cutest little campers in sleeping bags.  The patterns will be included in the camping pack I am currently working on.  
Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)
