I had said the theme this summer was Traveling Around the Globe, so this first week is about getting ready to go. We’re making passports and suitcases, getting them packed up and ready for our “trip”. We’ll read stories and sing songs about traveling. Since Father’s Day is this Sunday, we’ll make a project (Painting with Bubbles) that can be turned into a card or poster for Daddy.
Most projects, songs and games have links to instructions found online somewhere. (You’d be surprised how you can find entire preschool curricula online if you know where to look. Like this!) For books, take a trip to your local library for a wide selection on any topic. I have a fairly good collection of picture books built up over the years from Scholastic Book Clubs. These clubs are only available through a classroom or school setting, so talk to your child’s teacher if you don’t already receive book club order forms. Otherwise, you can still get great deals from their website, http://store.scholastic.com/, or Amazon.com, or your local library book sales (often just .50 per book).
I’ll be posting pictures in the Visual Aids category as the week goes by of projects and games. So excited to see how little Monkey Nose enjoys her very own Camp experience!
