Camping and Reading: The Perfect Combination!
Camping and Reading: The Perfect Combination!

Reading is the basis of so many things that we do, and helping children learn to love, and yes, find the JOY in reading can set them on a path to lifelong success, and adventures. 

Clarks Creek 2nd grade teachers get creative with the combination of joy and reading, when they host an annual campout (for a few hours, during the school day!) on the school's soccer field. This annual event is something students eagerly anticipate, as it includes many stations of reading-based activities, but all done inside one of several tents!

From the smiles on these faces, it's fair to imagine that the students spent a joy-filled day, had great stories to share with their families, and for some, at least, may be reading with a new enthusiasm. What a great way to celebrate reading and the great outdoors!
