Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, It's Off to Camp we go!

After spending way too much time at school this weekend, I think I am ready for CAMP SKEETER!

This is what the kids are going to see, when they first come in.
The kids are going to flip.  It looks so different.
SHHH!  I took a lot down to "prep for Skeeter"  SHHH!

 Here is a view from the back of the room.

Tent Area

Paper Plate Ducks

Turtles made with bowls

Camp Fire

Mail and Agenda Area

Now I am going to enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Camp Skeeter

In first grade, we end the last week of school with Camp Skeeter.
We decorate our room and we do all kinds of camp activities.
I always go a little overboard!
Here is a picture of day one of decorating.

Since this picture was taken, we've added frogs, ducks and turtles.
I must say, these are the cutest crafts ever.  I can't wait to share! 
When the kids had extra time, they added animals and plants that we would see at a campground in Ohio.
I will be going in this weekend to put the finishing touches (tent and campfire) around the room.
I will be sure to take loads of pictures.

We finished our Pirate Unit with a treasure hunt. 
Thanks to Party City, we had real exciting loot! 
I wish I could show you the faces of the kids as they opened this awesome treasure box!
Our bulletin board turned out so cute. 
 I 'll take a picture when I get to school. 
 I must share!
