This is what I plan on doing for Teacher Appreciation:

I'm going to run off a whole bunch of these Thank You Cards, and have them fill them out for the teachers in the school! I don't let them make them out to me,since there are plenty of other teachers who spend their time helping children. (Any adult who works with children is fair game for Teacher Appreciation, even if they don't have a certificate!)

Baseball Fun and Learning!

I'm so excited that baseball season is finally here! Baseball means spring! 

 
After a tough winter, anything that means spring is OK by me!
 
Baseball Fun! Books, activities, and resources to keep your sports fans engaged in learning!
 
I've been doing a lot of baseball reading this week, in honor of the opening of baseball season. Here are some favorites: 
 
                                                     

Baseball and April brings another opportunity: It's National Poetry month! What a great opportunity to write Diamantes!

Why Diamantes?  Because they are shaped like diamonds! (Get it? baseball diamonds?)

To add to the fun, I've found a great website where the kids can make their own diamantes online! (HERE!) 

Or check out this resource, with plenty of examples and options!
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Diamantes-Diamond-Shaped-Poetry-3918021?utm_source=baseball%20blog%20post&utm_campaign=diamantes

Speaking of shapes... a baseball diamond could be called a square or a rhombus, but did you realize home plate is shaped like a pentagon?

Have you noticed, when we connect learning to sports, all those little boys perk up?  (Many of the little girls do, too!)

I have a resource I'm VERY excited about called Baseball Geography
 
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Baseball-Geography-Learning-About-Places-with-Baseball-Teams-1809419?utm_source=baseball%20blog%20post&utm_campaign=baseball%20geography

These are all task cards based on the locations of major league baseball teams! I had such a blast putting this together, and so far my students can't get enough! Plus, they're really getting to know the locations on the US maps!

Here are a couple of other baseball themed games I've got:
 
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Baseball-Antonyms-Card-Game-212468?utm_source=baseball%20blog%20post&utm_campaign=baseball%20antonyms

Baseball Antonyms combines a couple of popular games with antonym practice. 

Plus, I have a couple of BINGO games with a baseball theme:

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Two-Digit-Addition-Baseball-Themed-BINGO-Game-302886?utm_source=baseball%20blog%20post&utm_campaign=home%20run%202%20digit%20addition



Home Run Two Digit Addition gives the children practice adding 2 two digit numbers, along with a little strategy. 
 
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Two-Syllable-Words-Baseball-Themed-BINGO-Game-303611?utm_source=baseball%20blog%20post&utm_campaign=home%20run%20long%20vowels

Home Run Two Syllable Words is a similar BINGO game, but this one gives the children practice reading two syllable words. 

The students LOVE these BINGO games! 

Come to think of it, they love anytime I combine learning with sports!

How do you include sports in the learning process?
