Okay, so I am absolutely beside myself that today is the first full Sunday of pigskin action. The pizza dude is on speed dial, the beverages are chillin’ in the fridge, and I have my fantasy schedules locked in (more about this later)!
My madness doesn’t stop here. And, you are probably already thinking I am nuts-o!! Wait for it. Wait for it . . . I am runnin’ with a fantastic football theme in class for the next two weeks. From reading centers and math games to PE relays and craftivities, good old Room 13 will drenched in pigskin and teamwork. I am all about creating a crew of kiddos that functions as a “we” right off the bat and football has proven to be a perfect outlet for this.
We officially kicked off the theme on Friday with a little help from our friends (otherwise known as our fabulous 7th grade buddies). They came up the hill and helped us create our newest class number line . . . football-style.
