New Year, New Resources

me

 

I am headed to TN to do a PD for Greeneville.  I am looking forward to sharing some of these resources with them on Tuesday.  Here they are for all of you!

 

  1. DEAM Calendar (January 2017)
  • Give this (deam-jan-2017) to students and encourage them to be active at home!

 

  1. Slam Ball
  • Thinking of submitting this for an OPEN 60+ After School Activity. Please try it and let me know how it can be better.
  • Equipment:
    • 1 hoop AND 1 ball per two (or four) players
  • Set-up:
    • Two players stand on opposite sides of a hoop at least one step away. If sharing a hoop, two other players can stand perpendicular at the same hoop. One player starts holding the ball.
  • Procedure:
    • The first player throws the ball into the hoop. The second player attempts to catch it.
    • If sharing a hoop with 4 players and the two balls collide, this is a ‘slam’ and the two players that threw the ball switch opponents.
  • Scoring:
    • Ball does not hit inside the hoop (point for receiving player)
    • Ball hits inside hoop, but does not bounce at least 1 step away from hoop (point for receiving player)
    • Ball hits inside hoop and bounces over the head of the receiver (point for receiving player)
    • Ball is not successfully caught by receiving player (point for serving player)

  1. My students love slam ball. I play using tables as well. Also, passed out your January calendar. Students are excited. Thanks for the resource. Will you have a Feb. Calendar as well?

    1. Michelle,
      I LOVE that your students love Slam Ball. It will be added to OPEN soon, which will allow more teachers to learn how to play!
      I will be posting a February calendar next week. I will also have a word version to allow for customization.
      Thanks for sending a comment.
