Are you ready for the big game?

If you're like me, you're taking advantage of the enthusiasm for the big game coming up!

It's Super Bowl time! Take advantage of the children's enthusiasm and let them enjoy some football themed learning experiences!

When children are excited about something, I always try to bring it into the classroom when I can. Books are a great place to start. (Click each image for a link to Amazon.)


There's a ton of kid-related Super Bowl videos on YouTube. Just google "Super Bowl for Kids!"

Here's one I found. The commercials are often the best part of the Super Bowl. I'm thinking I might have the children vote on their favorite. then make a graph of the voting. 

12 Funniest Super Bowl Commercials of all time

I'm sure you can find more YouTube videos that you can relate to classwork!

Here's a Super Bowl freebie with mapping and writing! Just explore the image.

Here's a freebie version of the above game, which practices Counting to 1,000. Just explore the image for the freebie!


This game can be played a few different ways, and always has the children giggling! All the verbs are football related, too! Football Past and Present Verbs.


I also have a couple of "twin" football BINGO games. This math game practices adding and subtracting tens.


Here's the literacy "twin," Touchdown R-Controlled Vowels

October Resources

It feels like we just started school, and already we're looking at October in the not-so-far distance. 

October Resources: Here are several resources, including a few freebies to help your students learn with seasonal fun! (Fire Safety week, football, and Columbus Day!)

October brings fall, Fire Safety Week, football, Columbus Day, and, of course, Halloween!

Brain research tells us if the children can make a connection with their learning, then learning will happen. I find most children can easily make a connection with special days and sports, which makes them more enthusiastic about learning! In face, I'm banking on their enthusiasm, and have plenty of resources to celebrate learning and building skills, in a fun way!

Teachers can project these questions as the children arrive in the morning in order to get them thinking about the day. These also can be used for daily writing prompts.


Here's a little something to maintain positive communication with parents: October Parent Communication Brochure


In an attempt to "fit in" more Science and Social Studies concepts, I've looked over my grade level College and Career Ready Science and Social Studies Standards, and found ways to squeeze these concepts into my day. Most of the work is done, all you have to do is print and go! I even have a S.T.E.M. activity with an October theme! Check out this resource here: Science and Social Studies Activities for October.


Check out this freebie sample here: Bats Informational Mini-Book

Here's a freebie to get the kiddos thinking about Fire Safety: Fire Safety What If task cards.


Here's a Columbus Day Informational booklet:  I realize the whole Columbus thing is quite controversial, with good reason! I left my opinion out, and kept just the facts. Feel free to include your opinion when you present it.  :)


Here's one to get them thinking and practicing reading skills: Christopher Columbus- Common Sense for Active Learners


It's fall in New England! There are so many beautiful changes here that make it one of my favorite seasons:  warm days, crisp nights, football, and the beautiful fall colors on the trees.  To make your life (and mine) easier, I've combined important concepts with fall ideas in these Fall No Prep Activities!


One of the best parts about Fall in New England?  Football! I've got plenty of Football Resources! Just click the images for each link!

Here's a freebie from the set above: 




And, of course, there's a Football bundle, combining all the resources above!!


If you're really looking to make your life easier, at a huge discount, check out this October Bundle!


Enjoy these October Resources!

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!

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!

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

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:

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

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


Home Run Two Digit Addition gives the children practice adding 2 two digit numbers, along with a little strategy. 

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?
