Wrapping Up Sports Theme Week and Ball Bounce Painting

We did a sports theme last week. Things were kinda hectic so I didn’t get around to posting much about it besides the gross motor games I shared.

There were some library books about how to play football and basketball.
One of those books came with a useful kindergarten-level vocabulary list in the back which became our copy work for a day.

There were word problems in math:
“If Jake gets 3 sacks in the first quarter and 2 sacks in the second quarter, how many sacks did Jake get? 3+2=?”

At one point I filled a jar with different types of mini sport balls and put a blindfold on LittleMan. We pulled one ball from the jar at a time and graphed what was pulled as we went.

We found free printable coloring pages of athletes with disabilities which we colored in while watching a wheel-chair basketball game on youtube and talking about the various ways people overcome physical set backs.

Of course I couldn’t let the whole week go by without finding some way to squeeze art in. I had hoped to make a football craft I found on Pinterest but LittleMan requested to re-hash an old favorite: ball bounce painting.

Now we’re half-way through our Greek mythology theme week and it is going splendidly, I can’t wait to share with you all the fun things we came up with! (And I promise, there will be better pictures. We finally got our camera situation worked out.)
