“Christmas Happy Camp” is our first project together. Starting from Ali’s previous summer camps experience and our endless enthusiasm for reading, we decided “Storybooks” to be the main theme.We then read, enjoyed and eventually chose our best Christmas Storybook Selection, modern and classic tales included.
This experience was run for 5 days, from 26th-30th December 2017, in Madrid, from 9 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon, so that we really had the opportunity to share daily routine activities such as meals and snacks with the children, to give them a valuable 100% involving English experience.
Each day had a different Storybook theme and all the activities were related:
reading aloud, new vocabulary, games, film, crafts, and hands-on activities and workshops like cooking Xmas cookies and playing with musical instruments.
Our schedule had been the following:
26/12 STICKMAN, Julia Donaldson
27/12 THE NIGHT BEFORE XMAS, Clement C. Moore
28/12 MICKEY’S XMAS CAROL, Charles Dickens
29/12 POLAR EXPRESS, Chris Van Allsburg
30/12 HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS, Dr. Seuss
