In order to figure out what I needed to pack, I started by making a loose schedule for my kiddos. Basically, we do our normal morning group all together (calendar, weather, journal, social time, etc.)
Then, I went through my Pinterest boards to figure out what fun activities/crafts we could do during "Teacher Time" (which is my time with the kids). Some of the activities I came up with were:
Following a recipe and cooking once a week things such as dirt cups, kool aid, trail mix, frozen smores, and ants on a log.
Some fun math games that involve dice. I made some differentiated dice worksheets....
And found some fun games at this site from Pinterest.
We will also be doing an art project once a week like these pipe cleaner fireworks.
...or this expand an image art project.
And of course activities with bubbles such as these "snake bubbles" and "bubble painting."
I laid out all my activities on a nice calendar and made a list of all the items I needed to collect/photo copy from around my classroom.
