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!

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?

Science and Social Studies for February

Do you find it difficult to fit everything in?

Science and Social Studies for February: This resource helps you find time for Science and Social Studies by including Groundhog Day, hibernating animals, Valentines Day, Super Bowl, and Presidents Day into "easy to prepare" lessons!

I sure do! The toughest things to fit in are Science and Social Studies.

Once we're done with reading, writing, spelling, handwriting, grammar, and math, there's no time left for these two subjects! 

The really sad part is that these are typically the most popular subjects, and the ones where everyone can have success!

I've been working at making it easier to squeeze these fun subjects in, and came up with this: Science and Social Studies Activities for February

It's got printables to make your life easier, yet it still provides learning opportunities in Science and Social Studies, along with February themes and engaged children!

For Super Bowl Sunday, it's got a science exploration that includes rolling balls down a ramp, predictions and revisions.
