My 6yo just finished a unit on adjectives. This got me thinking, “What is the easiest way to learn about adjectives?” FOOD. Salty. Crunchy. Sweet. Tart. Bitter. Soft. Munching green foods and describing them is a natural extension activity for classrooms.
Classroom teachers are incredible. They are also incredibly into themes. Dr. Seuss Week. Camping Week. Crazy Science Week. Martin Luther King Jr. Week. You get the idea. This game board is for teachers who have a theme on the human heart, exercise, or health.
I wish I could take credit for this one. However, my kids get the gold stars for this post. Those little people are always engineering new games on their own. I was elbow deep in dishes and they were rummaging for spoons and cuties. I peeked at their game and realized it was genius.
I admire educators. I even married one. They work hard and don’t need to fuss over creating their own Valentine’s Day brain breaks. Out of my gushing admiration for you I’ve created 16 different activities to encourage movement during the school day. The puns and actions are great for PreK – 4th graders.
