Super Why’s Musical Chairs (Week 2)
Campers play musical chairs with a twist—they practice literacy skills by reading the words taped to the chairs they sit on. As words, not chairs, get taken away, campers fill in the blanks.

Super Why’s Postcards (Week 3)
Campers fill in the blanks to complete sentences on printed post cards.
  • Postcards Craft Activity (PDF)

Super Why’s Woofster Words (Week 3)
Campers use given definitions to use to make their own picture dictionaries.
  • Woofster Words Game (PDF)

Super Why’s Powerful Props (Week 3)
Campers select props and decide which best fills in the blank in a sentence about the Around the World Adventure. They then search for the Super Letters and find the Super Story Answer.
