Summer School, Kids Camp: Day One

Today was Game Day in my Kids Camp summer school class. I have an insanely drastic variety of abilities in my summer school class, which was a little tricky today, but we made it work. I tried to pair kids off and not have the same activity for everyone. My range of kids is everything from 4 to 10 years old so I had tons of options available and let the kids choose their game. We worked on turn taking, sharing, saying "It's your turn" and being a good sport, even if you lose.

Game Day Games:
Board Games
Candy Land
Chutes and Ladders
Sorry
Doodle Dice (fell in love with it today, I think it's better in pairs than a group though)
Connect 4

Group Games
Simon Says
Follow the Leader (not so successful with my autism/asperger kids)
Red Light, Green Light
Hangman
Pictionary

Tomorrow's theme will be Art and Crafts Day. I'll try to take pictures of the projects and post them.
