Camp Read S'More is a club I created for advanced second grade readers at my school. I am librarian and I meet with the "campers" or students, most Friday mornings for about 45 minutes. This guide will give you all of the information you need to make the same club at your school. Feel free to change some of the tasks to fit your school. For example last year I required campers to pass 10 AR tests with 100% accuracy. This year AR was not funded so I had to change that requirement.
I received a grant to fund this project so you will find my exact grant in this document. You will also find
Pages 1 & 2 About Camp Read S'more and how I run the program. Along with what I use and
where to buy it on the internet.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Hi, I love your idea. I have a question about the badge tasks. Could you give me one or two examples of what those are? I am trying to determine if this would be something I would use for my struggling readers in grades 4-5-6. Thanks.
Let's see...some of the badge tasks.
* Read a book on a country and they reproduced the flag.
* Read and report on a sports book. Tell me what are the rule of the game and what equipment you need to play it.
* We read a book on basketball then our gym teacher played a game with them.
* They have read and reported on Caldecott award winning books and a Volunteer State Book Award winner or nominee.
* We have done a Egypt activities station.
* We had a national park ranger come and do a native animal presentation.
* We have done an animal tracks activity where they match the footprint to the animal.
* We've done a flat stanley doll and sent them off to different states.
* We had a book discussion group as a small group.
I have a total of 10 badges with 4 tasks under each, for a total of 40. They have to get 7 of the badges so I think this offers the kids first and foremost a choice on what they want to do and secondly a variety of activities that will suit their personalities.
