With March being Reading Awareness Month, my daughter’s teacher asked that I come in again to share another story. They are having a camping theme in their classroom, which made me think of this charming read, “A Camping Spree With Mr. Magee“.
It’s another great read aloud, with rhyming text and wonderful illustrations.
I wanted to do a craft to go with their camping theme – and this print and fold camper was too much fun to pass up. I found it as part of last year’s calendar of the month club from Curiosity. I did have to open it up in Photoshop to change the month and year, and while I was at it I cut and pasted photos of my daughter’s classmates into the RV windows (they are blurred above for privacy reasons).
I may also bring toothpicks and a bag of mini marshmallows for the kids to do some imaginary toasting.
Although I love the look of the armrests on the chairs, they are a little tricky to cut and fold. I plan to simplify them with the group, like the chair on the right.
I also love these fun campfire cupcakes from Parenting Magazine. I won’t be using these this time, but am keeping them in mind for the future!
Do you have any fun ideas for this weeks RS lesson…Teaching of our Times, George Albert Smith lesson 6? I was just asked to teach and my brain just won’t start thinking.
You always do such fun things. What a fun room-mom you are! Thanks for sharing!
