Summer Camp 2015 Day 1

What do graphic novels, iPads, and snacks have in common? Patterson RAPS Summer Camp, of course! We had an amazing first day of camp. We began by working on logic puzzles together to get our brains warmed up for the day ahead.

We then headed upstairs and listened to graduate student extraordinaire, Zaz, read from the graphic novel, Trackers, by Patrick Carman. Next, we took a break and played a fun game called "Entourage."

The primary books we're reading this summer are graphic novels. One group is reading El Deafo by Cece Bell and the other group is reading The Odyssey by Gareth Hinds. The students were introduced to the books yesterday, and we look forward to getting further into the books tomorrow.

After we read, we headed outside for a snack. Even though it was unbearably hot, we found time for a short game of "If"!

We ended the day by coming back in and exploring the iPad app, Explain Everything. We are really looking forward to seeing what the students are able to create with this app this week. Finally, Zaz led us in another read aloud of Trackers. It's going to be a great week!
