1) Song: Circle time

I’m going camping – Sung to: “Twinkle, Twinkle” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOJA_sBPaOA&feature=related

I’m going camping, yessireee!
I’m going camping; won’t you come with me?
First we’ll pitch our tent on the ground.
Then make a fire as we all gather round.
I’m going camping, yessiree!
I’m going camping, won’t you come with me?

Next we’ll cook on the open fire,
Then tell stories till we all get tired.
When the stars are twinkling bright
We’ll sleep in our tents ’til the morning light
I’m going camping, yessiree!
I’m going camping, won’t you come with me?

When we see the morning sun
We’ll wake right up ’cause the day’s begun!
There’s so much that we can do
Fishing, swimming, hiking too.
I’m going camping, yessiree!
I’m going camping, won’t you come with me?

A-Camping We Will Go… – Sung to: “The Farmer in the Dell” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxQGkPcAze4&feature=related

A-camping we will go,
A-camping we will go,
Heigh-ho, off we go,
A-camping we will go.

Additional:
First we pitch our tent
Then we chop our wood
We light our fire now
We cook our dinner now
Time to go to sleep

Going Camping – Sung to: “I’m a Little Teapot” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtyrU4IS8_0&feature=related

I am going camping.
(point thumbs proudly to chest)
Time to pack
(point to wristwatch)
My tent, my bedroll,
(Make tent with hands; then fold hands to cheek.)
And a snack.
(Pretend to eat)

I’ll sit by the campfire —-
(warm hands over fire.)
Its glow so bright.
(Fan and wiggle fingers to resemble fire.)
Then snooze in my tent
(Pretend to snore.)
‘Til the morning light!
(Open eyes wide, forming sun over head.)

Down by the campfireSung to:  “Down by the Station” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKQimrv-wYU&feature=related

Down by the campfire,
Late in the evening.
See all the campers,
Sitting in a row.
Looking at the campfire,
Hearing scary stories.
Boo! Hey, campers-
Where’d you go?

Shake my sillies out (Raffi) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaJWymsO1Dg

2) Art project:

a) Star:

Đục lỗ trên tấm bìa carton hoặc nắp can juice, dùng đèn flashlight chiếu lên tường. Vừa hát bài đếm sao.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABXYdyddX9k&feature=related

b) Binocular:

Làm ống nhòm bằng 2 lõi giấy vệ sinh hay 1 lõi giấy paper towel.

Cách làm: http://www.sproutonline.com/sprout/crafts/detail.aspx?id=3c1156c3-6dea-4a62-b38f-997a01819d0c

Hướng dẫn bé trang trí, tô màu hay cách dán các hình lên ống nhòm cho ống nhòm thêm sinh động.

c) Frog Puppet

Cách làm con ếch giấy với lưỡi thè dài: http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/puppets/frog/

Sau đó có thể cùng bé nhảy giống như con ếch nhảy và hát bài 1 chú ếch con. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amWMKixfQtM&feature=related

3) Montessori activity:

Gross motor: Hiking cho cả 2 nhóm: Xếp gối hoặc nệm ghế thành những con dốc hay đồi nhỏ, rồi cùng các camper nhí đi leo dốc, leo đồi, bạn nào chưa biết đi thì bò lên dốc.

Fine motor: group 1 thì tô màu hoặc dán họa tiết cho ống nhòm. Group 2 thì tập kéo mở khóa (zipper) của sleeping bag hoặc bất cứ loaị túi nào.

Math: Mua chex mix có sẵn ở các siêu thị và cho các bạn group 1 thì phân loại, group 2 thì ăn :))

4) Group play:

  • Scavenger hunt: Thả sâu bọ (của tuần bug week) vào trong lều và yêu cầu các bé tìm sâu bọ
  • Tô màu diều và thả diều.
