I needed a break from making new units/activities for my first graders. I'm ready to buy some now. I always do a camping theme at the end of the year. This looks great. Can't wait to use it! Thanks for saving me much needed time and energy.
Wow....This is great. We are camping this summer with our 6 year old, so I'll be using these to supplement school (during the summer months!). I particularly like the math activities. But the skunk activities are well constructed as well! Love your ideas for a S'mores culminating activity, and then having students doing expository writing to explain the process. I think I may have my child make a digital story explaining the BEST way to make a s'more! (And who doesn't LOVE seeing what happens to a marshmallow in the microwave....love your handouts that accompany that activity!) The craft animals are a huge bonus for this pack..but love it all!!! Well worth the price! Thanks for much for your quality work!
I found the graphics from a variety of different graphic artists! I believe the graphics in that particular packet are from Scrappin' DOodles :) I listed it on the credits page :) Hope this helps! Blessings!

Hi Cara... I bought this unit last year and my kids ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!! I am going to do it again and my other first grade teammates wanted to do it as well. Is there a discounted rate to buy two more license for the same purchase?
Oh, I don't have those for sale! The raccoon and moose were templates from another teacher on my team. The owl template is included in the Camping Capers packet. The frog was also a template from another team member. So sorry for the inconvenience! Blessings to you!

I love your unit preview and I so want to purchase it but I am starting second grade in a Spanish Dual Immersion class. Could I change the text if I purchase it? If so that would make my day and night, I just created a poetry unit with camping and this would so go along with my plans.
I'm sorry, but this packet is not editable. So sorry for the inconvenience!!! Have a blessed day!

I love your blog!! I teach 3rd grade. I love your camping packet. Would you consider adding in 3rd and 4th grade standards into these? I would love to purchase more of you things if they fit into my 3rd grade standards and challenged those students as well. You are so incredibly creative! I would love to see you have more 3rd grade standards. Thanks!

On the ABC order page with 6 words, the directions say pick 12 words instead of 6. I just LOVE this unit! Thanks!
I am not sure if queestion sent so I am going to send it again. One of our literacy coaches purchased Camping Capers. We didn't see any information on whether or not we could make a copy for each of our elementary literacy coaches (copyright info). Please let me know if we are able to do this.
Email me at email@example.com!!! Thanks!!

I have a quick question for you...I think there may be a typo on the Camping ABC order skill sheet. The page that has room for six words, sentences and picture has directions that say, pick 12 cards.... Minor, I know, but thought you might want to fix it... THANK YOU for the wonderful idea for a dreary April in Illinois, it will be three weeks of FUN! LOVE THIS CENTER! Gina Nicholls
I've been teaching for 10 years. I spent 7 years teaching Kindergarten and then moved up to 2nd grade and loved it! I didn't know what I was missing. A year later I moved to 1st grade and I'll never look back. It's the best!
