Ideas for a Camp for 1 Student?
« on: July 13, 2018, 11:34:27 AM »
So I have a whole music-themed camp planned, but that was based on at least 2 students joining (many of the activities are somewhat competitive games). The sign-up deadline is over, and only 1 student is registered for camp. My co-teachers have put in a good effort to try to talk students into both my camp and the other summer English class, so it's not that the info didn't get out there. [Note: my school is not small enough that I would have expected this, and I've had sufficient numbers in the past]

Any suggestions for activities/ways to tweak the camp so that it can be done with 1 student? This camp is 90 minutes a day, for 2 weeks.

Oh wow.. that really sucks man. Usually parents love free extra curricular English classes. I'm surprised they didn't push any of their kids into joining.
I'm planning a space camp which contains some activities which you could possibly use in a one to one class. I have some worksheets combining math puzzles, english puzzles, trick photo puzzles and other stuff. I also have a movie quiz which requires students to watch a two minute clip and answer questions about it. I have a pretty cool choose your own adventure quiz too. I can upload the materials I have later this afternoon anyways and link them below. My stuff is planned for a class and would probably take less time solo but some of it could probably be used in a one to one class though.

Thanks! I'd love to get a chance to look at your materials if you could upload them.

I suppose puzzles / small project-based stuff is the best way to go.

This is the link to the space camp thread. I just uploaded my files so you can take a look. One to one may be tricky but hopefully some of it is useful. Best of luck!
