Camp fires, tents, flashlights, worms and bears were scattered around BMS this morning as the children entered. Right away the children gravitated towards the table with the live earthworms.Though some children were hesitant to touch the worms at first, by the end of the morning, nearly all the children gave the worms at least one gentle pat.
On the rug in the Daisy's room,Max went fishing near the tent while Hudson and Brandon played guitars by the fire in the Sunflower's room on their sleeping bags.
During morning meeting we sat around the fire and sang many camp songs including, I've Been working on the railroad, Johnny works with one hammer, Do your ears hand low and John Jacob, Jingleheimer Schmidt. After we sang songs, the children roasted marshmallows by the fire as Ms. Rebecca told a story about Little Red Riding Hood and a The Big Bad Wolf.
After the marshmallows and the scary story, we went on a bear hunt in the Sweet Peas room. After a long day of hiking, looking for bears, canoeing, playing with worms and roasting marshmallows, we decided to change camp sites and get into our sleeping bags and listen to the story, A Camping Spree With Mr. McGee.
After our story, we made s'mores. Then Max made fires with twigs and red tissue paper while Ms. Rebecca, planted some flowers with Hudson, Brandon, and Scarlett.
During lunch the Daisies read We're Going On a Bear Hunt and talked about what to wearfor beach day. The Sunflowers and Sweet Peas had a combined Show and Tell and lunch and Rebecca told the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
