Every year (3rd year using it) I end with this unit. We set up a tent and the kids absolutely love it. They tell the next year's class how much fun it is to go camping at school. In fact I had one student tell him mom that he was going camping so she called concerned about not owning a tent to send with him! I had to clarify we were camping at school but that is how excited he was! Great work! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you!

Do you consider the majority of this packet appropriate for a Title I school of kindergarten? Trying to decide on purchase. Thanks
When I created this resource, I was teaching 1st grade and most of the activities were used during the spring that year. Some of the activities can definitely be adapted for Kindergarten, but the majority of the packet would be more appropriate for 1st! So sorry for the inconvenience! Blessings!
On the Part-Part-Whole section there are too many 7's and not enough 5's. For one of the questions is says the whole is 6, and the parts are 1 & 7 when it should be 5. Just thought I'd let you know! :-)
THank you for the heads up! I'll be sure to revise!!! Blessings!
can you please provide more than a cover to this unit as a preview...for \$8.50, it seems you could let the customer know more about what they are purchasing...please. :)
The preview is included :). You need to click the "download preview" button.
Hi Cara,
I purchased this camping unit, and I absolutely love it. I am preparing to use it beginning after April vacation.
Where did you find such awesome pages and graphics? They are beautiful.
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?
There sure is! You can go back to the page and click on "multiple user license" and purchase the discounted licenses there! Blessings to you!
Hi Cara,
I saw your unit on your blog and love it. Is there a way I can purchase templates for the animals: raccoon, moose, owl and frog?? They are adorable!!!!
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!
Cara,
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.
Thanks Cara,
Renee
I'm sorry, but this packet is not editable. So sorry for the inconvenience!!! Have a blessed day!
Hi Cara,
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!
Hi!
On the ABC order page with 6 words, the directions say pick 12 words instead of 6. I just LOVE this unit! Thanks!
Ooops!! Thanks for the heads up!
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.
