Camp Share-A-Story

Last week, on the day before Thanksgiving break, the 5th grade students went camping in their own classroom!  I transformed the room into Camp Share-A-Story.

The students never get a chance to read aloud their writing in class, and they get so disappointed when we don't have time to share.  I thought, since Thanksgiving week is short, we could use an hour to read aloud a couple of samples of our favorite writing pieces from our Writer's Notebook.
The students enjoyed eating S'mores dip/Graham crackers and drinking milk while listening to each other read aloud around a fake camp fire.  The sounds of a crackling fire played on the Promethean board and made the experience seem even more realistic.  As you can imagine, they had a blast at "camp."
