Perfect for Summer Time Fun!

Make sports and fitness a mental and physical workout. This is the literal definition of play-based learning with open-ended questions and activities that teach kids about exercise, competition, sportsmanship, and physical education! Get fit as you exercise your muscles and brains! This is a unit plan designed to teach kids ages 4-8 about teamwork, exercise, strength, sports, cardio, competition, and sportsmanship! It includes amazing videos of Olympic competitions, word-class athletes, and championship level displays of speed, strength, flexibility, and endurance.

Each week’s plan includes:

“Words of the Day” –high-level vocabulary words and their definitions for each day

Scripted Hooks with a captivating video or resource to capture the class’ attention and imagination for each day’s lesson.

“Questions of the Day” – open-ended questions related to the weekly theme. Includes many suggested answers but please add to the list! They are just guides to get your imagination in high gear!

“Socratic Questions” – Use these follow-up and leading questions to help your students answer even the most advanced “Questions of the Day.” Help your class remember, understand, and apply their knowledge and experiences to the topic at hand. Also, by asking these questions, you can model the thought process of a critical thinker and help students see what questions they should be asking themselves.

Job Poster – Each week’s theme includes a job poster related to the theme (e.g. Dinosaurs- Paleontologist). If your student’s find a passion, help them understand there is a way to make that their career!

A Common Core Kindergarten-aligned standards checklist so you can keep your lessons focused on ideas and passions and not be bogged down in never-ending benchmarks.

Additional Resources – At the end of each unit you will find two writing assignments related to the theme, vocabulary flash cards, & five theme related craft ideas.
