Camp Wanna-Read: Program Guide for the Texas Reading Club 1991.
Switzer, Robin Works
Camp Wanna-Read is the theme for the 1991 program for the Texas Reading Club, which centers around the experiences and types of things that happen at summer camp. Each chapter is a type of camp a child might attend such as cooking camp, art camp, music camp, science camp, Indian camp, nature camp, and regular summer camp. The chapters are divided by program and age level. In each chapter there are themes, ideas, and books for programs for children from preschool age through grade two, and grades three and up. The themes are used to unite the literature presented into a memorable whole, and to help with lesson planning. Programs for the grade two and under include books, films, fingerplays, dramatics, puppets, and crafts, and last for 30 minutes. Programs for grade three and up run from 30 minutes to an hour and include booktalks, films, guest speakers, creative writing, drama, and art. Also included in this manual are guidelines and resources for providing services to children with hearing disabilities; clip art; lists of outside resources including outside speakers and music, miscellaneous, and environmental resources; puzzles, drawings, handouts, and giveaways; and guidelines and sample materials to assist librarians in organizing a reading program. A 125-item bibliography is included. (DB)
