Day 2 of Summer Camp

We had an awesome second day of camp! The students all arrived on time again (yay, parents!). We began by playing a game where students had to line up in order of their birthdays, without talking to each other. They did surprisingly well! Next, Dr. Hundley continued reading Skeleton Creek by Patrick Carman aloud. We were all on the edges of our seats waiting to see what was going to happen next to Ryan and Sarah! Here is the book trailer for Skeleton Creek if you want to see what it is all about.

Next we took a break and played the Minute to Win It game, "Penny Hose". Students had to fish two pennies out of a pair of panty hose within a minute. It was pretty hilarious to watch!

Students then had time to read either The Maze Runner by James Dashner or Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life by James Patterson. Students continued taking notes on post-its, and spent the last few minutes of reading time sharing what they had read with each other. After the students read, they continued reviewing book trailers. They also began taking notes for the book trailers that they are going to be starting tomorrow. We can't wait to see what they come up with!

Finally, Dr. Hundley read some more from Skeleton Creek, and we finished up with another creepy video from the website that accompanies the book. We are looking forward to lots of fun to come the rest of the week!
