Would you like your kindergarten graduate to maintain his/her academic skills over summer break? Want to keep it fun? Then "Campamento Widjiwagan"*
is just what you're looking for!
"Campamento Widjiwagan" is a fictional summer camp, led by 2 fun, Spanish-speaking counselors, el Guía Daniel and la Guía Laura.
Each day, Monday through Friday, for one month of summer vacation, the counselors will lead "Campistas" through a 20-day activity book, reviewing skills and concepts learned in kindergarten.
Each week will look like this:
MONDAY: concept review day
TUESDAY: science day
WEDNESDAY: concept review day
THURSDAY: mini book report
FRIDAY: concept review day
Concept Review Days
each review 2 math and 2 literacy skills.
Concepts include: time to the hour, tens & ones awareness, 3-dimensional shapes, sentence formulation, word endings by gender & number, syllable awareness, and more.

review basic science concepts of kindergarten. Included are: 5 senses, seasons, buoyancy, and living vs. non-living things.
Mini book reports
ask Campistas to think of a favorite book read during the week, and record its title and author. Campistas also record the book's setting and main character, as well as drawing and writing a sentence about a favorite moment from the story.
In addition to the academic skills covered in the packet, each day's page also asks Campistas to help counselors make the daily weather and day-of-the-week announcement.
All pages and activities are designed to take just minutes, so that Campistas can keep their academic skills fresh without disrupting the freedom and fun of summer vacation!
To use this packet
, simply print all pages from the review book cover (page 6), the letter from Los Guías (page 7), through all activity pages (page 8- 27). Then stack and staple, and you're ready to go!
