Thank You

  I remember back to that day when I started this blog.  I just wanted to share my ideas with you, and chat about different ways to help children learn.  My granddaughter, who is a kindergarten, and lives with me is starting to read.  What a gift to see a child put all the parts together and LEARN!

That's what I wanted to share with you.
 The gift and wonder of learning. 

This blog is important to me. I feel most grateful for YOU!
Thanks to all of you who take time to come to this blog and visit with me.  Thanks to all of you who have shared ideas and your   thoughts . I know it is a small thing, but I feel connected to you.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  I'm celebrating 500,000 views, and thinking of new posts that I want to share with you that I have brewing in my head.

Recess Learning with Campaign Signs

I know that you seen many outdoor campaign posters like this with the upcoming election:

After the election, all these signs are removed and thrown away, 
so make use of this valuable resource and create this activity.

During lunch recess time, work with you lunchroom supervisor or a  parent volunteer to reinforce learning that is happening in your classroom.
First, glue a piece of paper over the front and back of the sign.  Write or glue on a written question and answer on the sign. For this example, let's imagine that your students have been studying addition doubles plus one or two.

Student begins at the start and softly dribbles the ball  to the first sign. The student calls out the answer, then waits
 to see if the answer is correct.

 A student standing next to the sign tells the student
 if they are correct.
  If they are correct,
then they softly kick the ball through the legs of the sign.
Student continues through all signs in the order
 specified by the teacher. 
great fun + exercise + learning = a great activity 

Leave a comment and let me know what you think of my idea.
