PADDLES IN PE – 4 fun games worth checking out!

Advertisements

Bring on the foam! I love using foam equipment in my PE classes. Foam swim noodles, foam activity pins, coated foam balls, and lately, foam lollipop paddles regularly weave their way throughout my curriculum. For the most part, foam equipment is durable, versatile, and extremely safe, especially for my younger students.

Foam paddles have always been a huge hit with my Pre-K – 3rd-grade classes. Here are four popular games we like to play.

Paddle to Mozart

This is a fun way to make a cross-curricular connection with your music program. Our first-grade classes were studying famous composers. During PE, I presented a slide with a composer and a brief biography. Then we played a game while listening to the composer. Although this game is called Paddle to Mozart, you can easily plug in any composer, musician, or genre of music that the students are studying in music class.

I like using the paddles to move the ball across the floor encouraging multiple changes in speed and pathway. When Mozart is playing, the students move the ball. When the music stops, they quickly move then stop the ball into an open hoop. We have discussions prior to and after each lesson about sharing space, being polite, and using controlled movements. Finally, with my younger students, I use the same number of hoops as there are students. However, you can use one or two fewer hoops than students to make it more competitive. With this, there needs to be a discussion on resolving potential conflict if two people get to a hoop at the same time.

Home Run Derby

This is a great activity to play to enhance striking skills and moving to the ball. You can play this game without a point system. However, I get more engagement when they can keep score.

Scoring:

-Each player gets three turns to strike before rotating.

-Practice striking like swinging a bat and like practicing a tennis forehand

Points system for defense

– 1 point for fielding the ball cleanly in front of you

– 2 points for catching a fly ball

Points system for batter

– 1 point if the ball rolls past the defender

-2 points if the ball hits the back wall

-No points if the ball is bobbled by the defender.

HEALTHY HABITS BINGO

Advertisements

If you’re like me, you want to teach your students and your own kids the importance of healthy habits at a young age. Healthy habits are behaviors that are beneficial to one’s physical or mental health, often linked to a high level of discipline and self-control. Therefore, whether it’s brushing teeth, limiting screen time, or playing outside, we want the people we love and care for to regularly take on these actions at a young age so they will eventually turn into habits.

HEALTHY HABITS BINGwill help reinforce conversations you may have already had with your students and loved ones. 

Click on any of the pictures for access to the challenge!

What is HEALTHY HABITS BINGO?

HEALTHY HABITS BINGO comes with a BINGO card consisting of 24 different healthy habits. Over a chosen period of time, kids can check off each of the healthy habits as they complete them. I give my students one month to see how many times they can record a BINGO up, down, and diagonally. The ultimate goal is a SUPER BINGO, which is filling in the entire card.

There’s also a blank HEALTHY HABITS BINGO template as seen below. This gives kids a chance to create their own HEALTHY HABITS BINGcard. They can fill the template with their own healthy habits and share it with family and friends.
