Sports Writing Center Ideas and An Amazing Giveaway!

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Sports Writing Center Ideas and An Amazing $100 Teacher Giveaway!Sports Writing Center
In general, most boys in the primary grade are extremely creative. Just get a little boy to talk about his favorite sport or superhero and there is no stopping them! But getting them to write all of it down is a little more challenging with boys. 
I like having seasonal writing centers up in my classroom, but I also like having some year round centers that reach out to certain hobbies and pastimes the children really enjoy. 
This post is about having a sports writing center, I have even included a word list for you to print or display in your classroom. There are so many words, you can change it up weekly, monthly or pick the ones that work with the vocabulary from your reading series and leave them up all year.
This is one of my favorite, inexpensive, writing centers, especially for new teachers. Click here to see how to get started. You will need to model and role play how to use this center when you first start, but as the year rolls on they will get use to the system and the best part....you can teach your small groups without interruption. Click here to see how easy it is to introduce to your students during any month of the year.

BUT FIRST, before we get to the word list, time for our giveaway! Every month, on the 28th,  Michelle and I will be holding our Online Cyber Sunshine Committee Meeting!
Who can join? Teachers! Support Staff! Principals! Media Specialists! Homeschool Parents! Assistant Principals! Reading Coaches! PE Coaches!
Each month we want to reach out and thank you for all your hard work with a HUNDRED DOLLAR HUG! This month we will be treating your feet, yes, you read that right, your feet. The winner of our contest will get a $100 gift card for new shoes. We know the beginning of school is hard, we've been there. My last classroom was a portable outside in the Florida heat and concrete. My poor feet were miserable... m.i.s.e.r.a.b.l.e! Especially in the 100* days of August in Florida!

Spreading Love and Building Relationships with Your Student Awards!

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas - Spreading love and building relationships with your student awards.I Put ♥Mrs. Smith Pretty Much on Everything!
I love awards, I love award ceremonies, I love seeing a group of boys and girls holding up a piece of paper like it is a million dollars and smiling a big, missing-toothy grin at the parents! Even cuter, one certificate is usually upside down!!! 

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas - Spreading love and building relationships with your student awards.

I also loved filling out awards, I would put a heart next to Mrs. Smith on everything. I love teaching and I love kids, just like all of you... but the kids need to know it too! No matter what type of awards my schools would buy, I write "♥Mrs. Smith" or "Love, Mrs. Smith" on every, single one! Even when there is no line, I squeeze it into the corner. Any chance we get to build a relationship with our students, we need to take it. 

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas - Spreading love and building relationships with your student awards.

So many teachers don't understand, the more work you put into the relationship, the less work you will have to put into discipline! When your kids love you and know that you love them, they will bend over backwards to be good for you ~ I guarantee it! The extra time spent writing "♥Mrs. Smith" on all the awards is ten-times better than having to write an office referral.
