July Summer Camps

In Vivan los Animales Preschool Camp we explored the animal kingdom and learned dozens of new Spanish words. We made colorful pinatas and turned them into chicks (pollitos) and tigers (tigres). We made the caterpillars and butterflies from the book 'La Orga Hambrienta' (The Very Hungry Caterpillar). We also decorated the scales of the giant rainbow fish that we read about int El Pez Arco Iris (The Rainbow Fish). To help us even more with our Spanish, we sang many songs in Spanish during circle time. It was great!

In Print It - Environmental Camp we made prints with whatever we could get our hands on: giant leaves, rubber fish, grass, bug stamps...
We met live worms, watched caterpillars disappear into cocoons and painted with real dirt! What a fun, messy, earthy week!
