|Harry Potter Camp|
Low Level camp - 26th December - 2nd January.
For my low level camp. I took the Harry Potter theme and based my day around this theme.
My low level students were 4th graders. They can not understand anything in English. Therefore, all the camp was quite simple. It mainly considered of teaching phonics and alphabet in the morning, followed my crafts in the afternoon.
I gave each student a file. This file was kept at school for the week. On the front I stuck brown paper. They decorated the front with their Korean name in English. I don't agree with giving kids English names. I think people should learn how to pronounce their names.
To also keep them motivated. I used the sorting hat to split them into teams. I found this worked the best. Every time they answered a question they got a sticker for their team. All but one tried their up most hardest,
On day one, we explained the rules and made old paper.
Day two, we made school ties and took wanted pictures in the photo booth. I also brought in ice-cream. This seemed to motivate them......
Day three, we made wands and did the animal hunt (see regular camp) . This day they wore their new ties. they were sooooooo cute!
Day five, I had no co-teacher so I couldn't do much. We just did a raffle and finished our magic ABC book.
This camp was so hard on the first day. This was because none of the students knew each other and the fourth grade is the worst in my school. They don't want to do anything. They just seem to stare even when they get told in Korean. But, the house point system seemed to motivate them (except Gryffindor). In fact Slytherin was the best team....................
