Night Before Summer Camp Freebie

I just got home from running some errands and working with my kiddo that I'm tutoring over the summer.  He is so fun!  We're working on his reading and it's coming along.  We read a story today about street signs.  At first, he was not happy that he had to read the signs...I could understand his hesitation though because there were a lot of signs especially for a first grader who is struggling.  

During the picture walk I told him he didn't have to read ALL of the signs, but I wanted him to read some of them.  We discussed why they were there and what they meant.  Well, by the third page he willingly read ALL of the signs!  I was so excited.  His curiosity got the best of him and he wanted to know what they said.  

It definitely helped that one page had an ice cream store with a Free Ice Cream sign!!  I told him reading signs was important!  :)

Working with him over the last few weeks made me think about another favorite story that my kiddos loved last year...The Night Before Summer Camp by Natasha Wing.  Click the picture to go to Amazon:
The Night Before Summer Camp
So I created The Night Before Summer Camp Activity Pack.  It could easily be done as part of a summer camp program or during a camping theme throughout the year.  It's available at my TpT store for only $2.00!  Here's a look at what's included:

The first two people who leave a comment with an email address can have it for free!  
If you're not the first two, here's a freebie for ya!  Enjoy!

I got a couple more goodies while yard 'saling' again last week!  I'll share them with you next time!
