A Year of Awesome - Week 23
Character Education & Classroom Management, Physical Education & Movement Saturday, February 21, 2015
This is four-corner soccer. We lay the benches down on their sides in the four corners of the gym and I split the class into four teams. The pinnies help the kids tell their teammates apart, as everyone is all over the gym at the same time. The goal is basically to score against any other team so it is constant running from one end to the other. (It's all part of my master plan to tire them out! I love how they're all a-blur!! Awesome!)
Needless to say, I needed to change things up a bit to keep everyone interested. With an hour-long arts period this afternoon I decided to scrap my original plans to introduce the kids to a new game I purchased from the Scholastic catalogue, Mental Blox.
Oh.My.Word. I remember now why we DON'T dress up at Halloween. The kids were bouncing off the walls (literally for some of them!). They were cute, and they were having fun, but I am one exhausted teacher today, and so ready for my weekend!
I'm feeling pretty Awesome about my first-ever guest post on a collaborative blog today, though! Please pop over to Who's Who and Who's New to check out my post all about how I organize guided math in my classroom. I hope you like it and would love for you to leave me a message!
Happy Weekend, Everyone!!
