Today is the last day of my 6th grade winter camp and I have enjoyed every single day! To be honest I was almost dreading my 6th graders and was a little anxious as to how camp would go. Don’t get me wrong, outside of class these kids are an awesome bunch but once you get them into a classroom, especially for English, some turn into the most unresponsive, naughty students ever! That is a generalisation though; there are a few that are not like this.
However, with my summer camp the numbers fluctuated each day which made it hard to work out games or activities when not all members of a team are there. When it came to asking questions to the class it was like pulling blood from a stone. But this camp, they have been amazing! Even though it’s the same students answering most times, you can see the other team members on the table (those that are a shyer) whispering answers so I know they know them, which is alright with me. In games and activities, they have all participated and the best part is that they all turn up each day.
So all in all, this has been an awesome winter camp for both my 5th and 6th grades. Last day today, then off on my vacation on Sunday.
Pics of this camp will go up soon.
