May 27, 2010

 

 

Welcome to Camp!

 

You and your children will have an exciting adventure into Asia as you set up four different shops in different Asian countries throughout the month: Every day you will have 6 activities to keep the children’s minds and bodies moving.

Familiarize yourself with these camp facilitation tools before you begin:

Lesson Plan Books

Lesson Plan Book
Activity suggestions are described in detail every day to help you successfully facilitate the camp program. If the activities seem too difficult for your children call our office about the infant/toddler supplement book. The Little Goose Lesson Book will explain how to adapt the activities for children ages 9-months to 2-years-old.

Punch out the daily keys found in every day bag. The six keys identify the six activities for the day. Tape the keys to the poster at the beginning of each day as you review the daily activities with the children. Remove one key at the end of each activity.

 

Daily Specials Poster

Each day features a letter and number of the day. Cut out the numbers and letters. As you start the day, invite a child to tape on the letter and number of the day. Read the lesson plan book for ideas on how to watch for “specials” throughout the day.

 

The Great Mountain Hike book and CD

 

The Great Mountain Hike book and CD
The story in this book takes place in Asia and features the FLY mascot Falco. As suggested in the lesson plan book, read a chapter at a time. The music CD brings the stories to life with songs sung by the main characters in the book. Other sing-a-long songs and fingerplays are listed in your lesson plan book to complement the activities of the day.

 

 

Calendar

Day Bags

Keys

The name of each activity is printed on each key. Each key has a different icon that can be matched to the icon on the poster. The icons represent the type of activity that you will do each day.

Keys

Feather Activity: a simple game to reinforce five values that will nurture good decision-making. These values are Discipline, Integrity, Resourcefulness, Contentment and Generosity.

Game: The high energy game idea will get your children running, building, climbing and crawling through obstacles. These games are great to do outdoors but if raining, most can be played inside as well.

Art Project: Supplies are included to make a new art project every day. The art projects become the merchandise of their store. Children can buy their art supplies with the play money they earned the day before. 

Story or Song: Gather together for imaginative stories or a silly song. Each week you will read from the included storybook, sing along to familiar tunes with new lyrics, and participate in fingerplays.

Around the World Activity: Learn about Asia and practice team work as you and the children cook tasty recipes, make flags, decorate scrapbooks, or play games featuring the animals of Asia. If project materials are required, find the materials in the corresponding day bag.

Money: Learn about needs and wants, where money comes from, how to save and why to give. Discuss the importance of doing your best and how to realize when you have enough stuff. Children learn to save for a dream and spend their money wisely. After this hands-on money game or activity, review the activities of the day and pay each child $5 for their hard work. Children place their $5 in their spending, saving and giving envelopes.
