A dear friend of mine is a Physical Education teacher and she asked me to work with her on this product!
This idea was born because she wants her students to be able to work independently or reinforce some basic skills and stretches while she works with other students.
The plan is to put the "posters" around the gym so that the students can move around to them to do the skills indicated. All you need is a regular deck of cards (or two!) and if desired, some dice. It is designed to differentiate for students who can work at a higher level and do more, too.
Included in this product:
*Thirteen Suit Skill Task Cards (each skill is on all four suits)
*Number Cards 3 - 25
*Plain Suit Posters
*Plain Suit Skill Cards that are blank for you to write in any skill that you’d like your students to perform.
You can use this in several ways:
*Post the posters that include both the suit and skill around your gym and/or classroom. Post only one suit at a time. Have children pick a card from a deck (remove the aces and face cards!). They look at the suit on their card, go to that “suit” on the wall, and perform that skill for the number of times that is on their card. You could also tell the students that aces are worth 11 and that all face cards are worth 10.
*Post the plain suit posters around your gym and/or classroom. Pass out the skill cards and designate who goes to what suit (boys to red suits, girls to black, if you’re wearing ______, etc.) Once they are at their correct location, have them roll two dice to determine how many times they perform that skill.
*Hang up the plain suit posters. Have kids select a card that has a skill and suit on it. Then have them select one of the number cards. They go to that area of your gym/classroom and perform the skill that number of times. (Use the higher number cards for older or more advanced students and/or for differentiated instruction.)
*Put certain skill posters out around your gym/classroom. Put the number cards face down in front of the skill. Select a student to turn a card over. The students then perform the skill for the number shown.
These directions and ideas are included within the product for you to follow and/or use!
