Sports Theme
Old 07-25-2007, 04:28 PM

I teach 1st grade and did a sports theme last year. What a hit!! I made sure to include gymnastics, cheerleading and dance. However I feel that the most imporant part of the sports theme is just focusing on teamwork, practice (classwork and homework) makes perfect (assessment), determination, etc...

I have never had a class work so well together and I think the theme had a lot to do with it.

A few cute ideas: Hang hula hoops and use them to display student work, hit up the local college or HS to get donated Jerseys. I hng them and the kids loved them! Also, I had a "locker"/cabinet filled with treats of different point values. For every day of super behavior they were awarded with a game ticket. On Fridays they could trade in tickets for their prizes should they choose to. Some were worth 50 tickets so they also learned about patience and the art of saving!!

Good luck!!!
