IDEAS TO USE WITH THE CAMPING THEME


Include the following in the classroom: tent sleeping bags articial Christmas Trees logs/stumps for sitting on camp chairs coolers for sitting on picnic baskets shing poles Woodland Stuffed Animals Flashlights Use Woodsy-themed or flannel fabric to make pillow cases. Instead of just numbering tables refer to them as Camp Sites Use tackle boxes as supply boxes. Create a Survival Guide as your welcome letter and info to parents. Instead of bathroom passes I made outhouse passes. Use flashlights to read the room or for word wall games. Make a CD of nature sounds to play. Provide Lincoln Logs for recess/choice time.
