It's hard to believe that this school year is just about over!  But that just means we have to cram as much fun as possible into this little bit of time.  
Bring on the Happy Campers!

Happy Camper Classroom Setup
This tent set-up has been an exciting addition to the room.  I have been choosing two kids at a time to get to use our campsite.  They can choose to sit in the chairs, or sit inside the tent while they do their work.

 I hung this display in the hall, but it would also make a cute bulletin board display.  I took a picture of each student looking "excited".  The kids got to color their camper any way they wanted, then we glued their pictures in the window of their campers.

We made a class graph about whether they would want to camp in a tent or a camper.

 Next to our tent, I have a fishing station set up.  The fishing poles are just dowel rods cut to size with twine tied onto one end, and a magnet tied to the end of the twine.  The paper fish each have a paper clip attached to their mouths so they can be "caught"!

The kids can sort the fish by size of color.

Thanks to Lucky Little Learners for these awesome QR codes for some camping read alouds!

For a little crafting time, we made handprint campfires.

Then of course, who doesn't need a new bookmark?!

And then there's my new favorite Happy Camper shirt!  This shirt is so comfy and soft, and it really ties the theme together, don't you think!?

If you liked these ideas, you can grab my Happy Campers unit on Teachers Pay Teachers!  
(I have more ideas for this unit in the works.  If you purchase now, before the price increases, you'll be able to get the updates for free!)
