Preschool Corner–Camping Theme

I am catching up on school posts.. so bear with me this is an old one!  We did a camping theme in September.. we hoped to cap of the theme with a trip camping.. we unfortunately got a ton of rain.. followed by some really busy weekends!   So with out further ado here are the things we got into that week;

Letter L with our Kumon workbook:


Beginning letter page:


Our goldfish page from All about Reading:


A graphing page.. (I helped finish color in the boxes so he wouldn’t get confused about which ones were colored)


Pattern page.. this really clicked this time:


We matched up words with their pictures (with some help):


A number puzzle ( 11-20):


We had some fun experimenting with surface tension.  The paper boat was floating on the water.  When we dipped our kabob stick into dish soap then put it towards the back of the boat the boat shot across the water.  Sammy didn’t understand why but found it to be a lot of fun (all we are going for):


He liked this so much we made several boats and experimented with wear to put the soap and what it did to the boat.  This one spun around in circles:


A few resources:

-Camping printables were from Homeschool Creations and 2 Teaching Mommies.

-Science experiment was from this one.

-Letter Page: My First Book Of Uppercase Letters (Kumon Workbooks)

-Our go along books was  Curious George Goes Camping
