Week 6 Summer Activities (July 27)
1. Rhyming Fun
This activity is great for modeling writing as the child dictates, and gives them a chance to practice if they are writing on their own.
2. Family Fun
Camping Challenge: Set up camp in your back yard or even in your house. Set up a tent, have a camp fire, eat camping themed food (s’mores) tell ghost stories and sleep under the stars or in another room in your house besides your bedroom.
3. Arts and Crafts Fun
Nature Scavenger Hunt: Take a walk in your yard, on a trail, or anywhere it is safe. Collect anything interesting you find (make sure it is not poison ivy, or someones favorite flowers). Bring it home and make a collage out of what you found. You can use paper and glue, or stick it on the sticky side of contact paper or packing tape. Get creative.
4. Writing/Drawing Fun
Same, Same, but Different: In a lot of stories there are things that seem the same, but end up very different. They have common threads. What are the common threads between you and your friends or your family? Write about the ways you are the same as they are and the ways you are different.
