I'm teaching ESL summer "camp" for the first time ever this year. Today we had a planning day and I found out I'm teaching upcoming kinders! Some of these little guys will still only be 4 years old, yikes! I'm used to 1st graders who already know how to use a public restroom, sip water from the fountain, and walk in a line. I'm going to have a new found respect for all you K teachers out there after this!
The theme this summer is "A Healthy Me" and we've decided to work on:
safety and hygiene (maybe a visit from the fire dept., police, lifegaurd, dentist, nurse)
sorting healthy and unhealthy foods
naming basic body parts (incorporating the 5 senses)
So if any of you fabulous teachers have some very basic ideas for teaching these please share! I need to start browsing some kinder and pre-k blogs. I'd also appreciate any ideas for simple (independent if that's possible) math and literacy "stations" for the kids to do every morning during arrival.
Also, only 2 more followers to make it to 150!! I'm eager to hit that mark since 100 somehow slipped past me. My new vocabulary packet is posted on TpT and ready to go. I'll give away a copy soon I hope!
And thanks Brenda, from Primary Inspired, for blogging about it! The support of others is so encouraging- one of the reasons I love our little blog community so much (my husband thinks I have a problem/obsession though).
