Today was my first day of Summer Camp.. A very enlightening experience, and I'm looking forward to the next 9 weeks. The kids are great and the experience will no doubtedly be beneficial to me. I am pleased with my abilities, as today was my first trial-run of my weekly-themed, daily lesson plans. As it was Canada Day yesterday, as per our "Explore the World" theme- Canada is our first destination country. I had the kids learn about Canada's national animal: The beaver. I taught them some basic facts about beavers and related different concepts to other wildlife; for e.g., prey vs. predator: prey: beaver, predator: fox. The kids were very engaged and I was very glad to see their participation! Afterwards, I created a "beaver cut-out" which they would in turn colour, cut-out and then glue to a piece of construction paper. In addition to their 'Canada package" they coloured in and cut out a flag for the beaver to hold. The kids created some really cute beavers!! :D
Tomorrow we're going to Greece! We're going to watch Hercules- the Universal Studios Version- post storytelling. I'm going to be telling them two famous myths: The Story of King Midas and The Boastful Spinner- Arachne. Need a refresher? Wikipedia it!
