"The Virtual Summer Camp Adventure is a twelve-week virtual camp with six bi-weekly themes around 'Tales and Tails', the national summer reading campaign."
There will be new choice boards every two weeks that focus on a variety of themes from fairy tales, zoo animals, graphic novels, and more! Each choice board will have links to 20 free Capstone ebooks available until August 31st! That's access to 120 free ebooks this summer thanks to Capstone! Buncee has joined in the giving and created free reading activity templates, stickers, and animations for students to use too! Teachers can sign up and create usernames and passwords for students to use all summer long or families can help their students get signed up. It's a pretty fun creation tool where kids will love sharing their learning in innovative ways. Create an account at www.buncee.com.
Choice Boards are accessible now at https://www.capstonepub.com/camp
Here is a link to a family letter inviting families to participate and explain a bit about the program. Feel free to make copies of the letter and send it to families or email it.

June 4J Virtual Field Trips
- June 2nd: Be Rescue - We get to watch a hive get rescued from an old barn being torn down and watch the catching of a swarm!
- June 9th: Greenhill Humane Society - Small Animals. I thought it would be fitting to end the year where we started with a visit to see the little creatures of the Humane Society.
Thank you for your help spreading the word!
