Call Number: GV 443 .B94 2004
ISBN: 0736048499
Publication Date: 2004-02-17
Until now, warming up and cooling down have been seen as drudgery—a boring start to a game or class. But not anymore. 101 Fun Warm-Up and Cool-Down Games provides the antidote to the age-old warm-up and cool-down routines of jogging and stretching. When students take part in these games, they will be fully engaged, having fun, and effectively preparing their minds and bodies for the game or activity that lies ahead. This innovative book provides complete information for implementing 101 core games: -The theory behind warm-ups and cool-downs (why they're important and what they should consist of) -41 fun games that can be used in a variety of situations -60 sport-specific games in 7 sports (badminton, baseball, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, and volleyball) -113 variations of the core games to help leaders shape the activities to their group's needs -An easy-to-follow format with illustrations for the more complicated games to ensure proper setup and understanding of the game -A game finder to help leaders easily locate games and determine which are suited to their needs The game descriptions include group size, age, and skill level, making it easy to find the game that's just right for your group. They also can be used as stand-alone activities that promote fitness and fun. And the sport-specific games help kids warm up while working with the ball or equipment that they'll use in their games. The variety of games, the sport-specific applications, the adaptability to different groups, and the multiple uses of the games make this book a valuable resource for any leader working with students or athletes. The illustrations and easy-to-use format make it straightforward and reader-friendly. These games are so engaging that students and athletes will hardly know they're warming up or cooling down. Come game time, they'll be charged up and ready to go. And after the game, they won't mind cooling down.

40 Reading Intervention Strategies for K-6 Students: research-based support for RTI - Elaine K. McEwan-Adkins
Call Number: LB 1573 .M3913 2010
ISBN: 9781934009505
Publication Date: 2009-10-23
This book provides a well-rounded collection of research-based reading intervention strategies that can be used by classroom teachers, interventionists, Title I, special educators, and ELL teachers seeking to support struggling readers in their classrooms and schools. It also provides teacher-friendly sample lesson plans and miniroutines that the classroom teacher can readily understand and adapt. Finally, the book offers citations and descriptions of current research that educators can use to substantiate their strategy choices.
Most educators are deeply concerned with literacy levels in their schools. Everyone is feeling the relentless pressure of high-stakes tests and the need to provide the highest levels of instruction. Specifically, this book is intended for elementary teachers of all kinds and levels, literacy coaches, interventionists, speech pathologists, other educational specialists, special education, bilingual, and Title I administrators, and even college and university professors who are looking for a research-based collection of intervention strategies as a resource in their classrooms.
The intervention strategies are numbered one to forty and are grouped into seven sections: instruction, phonemic awareness, word identification, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and reading a lot. Highly effective teachers often use these ?intervention strategies? during whole-group instruction, since many of them will not only scaffold struggling readers but will also motivate and accelerate average and above-average students. Many of the interventions gain exponential power when implemented across a grade-level team or throughout the school. Each of the seven topical sections is preceded by a short research summary, and each of the forty intervention strategies is presented in the following format:
? A description
? A brief discussion of essential background knowledge and more specific research
? Sample lessons, think-alouds, mini teaching routines, or instructional aids to support instruction

Adapted Games and Activities : from tag to team building - Pattie Rouse
Call Number: GV 445 .R68 2004
ISBN: 0736054324
Publication Date: 2004-07-29
Nothing sparks a child's or adolescent's interest like a new game! Adapted Games & Activities: From Tag to Team Building provides a wealth of games to get your students and participants moving and having fun, regardless of their cognitive or physical ability levels. By offering exciting activities that entice your students to participate, you'll not only help them reap the enormous physical benefits of exercise, but you'll also provide opportunities for them to learn to share, express feelings, set goals, and function independently. The activities in this book have been proven to work in the real world of school and recreation settings. Author Pattie Rouse, an experienced adapted physical educator and recreation and sport leader, has designed and pilot-tested these games to enhance success while challenging participants to think and use their physical abilities. The games and activities range from low to high organization, from teacher directed to community based. You'll find the following in Adapted Games & Activities: -Teacher-directed games and activities provide you with a way to work on specific skills and movements with your students and participants—and have fun at the same time. -Success-oriented tag, chase, and dodge games use a nonthreatening, interactive approach to give participants a sense of belonging and self-confidence, regardless of their physical abilities. -Team-building and cooperative games and activities teach group dynamics, self-esteem, respect, and trust. -Higher-organization games are for those students and participants who need a greater challenge. -Lead-up sport and leisure activities help your students and participants work toward playing sports in a school or community setting by developing sport-specific skills and tactics. Except for the higher-organization games, all games are simple, with few rules, so they're easy for students to comprehend. And since little or no equipment is required, your prep time is kept to a minimum. Better yet, you'll find variations for each game, as well as modifications and teaching tips, so that you can easily tailor each game to your participants' cognitive and physical abilities. And all the activities emphasize cooperation and team building to encourage social interactions, develop self-esteem, and build community spirit. Participants who enjoy and feel successful in physical activities are more likely to want to participate in the future, both in and outside of your program. Using Adapted Games & Activities will help you provide a foundation of success so that your students may experience a lifetime of physical fitness—and the sense of accomplishment that goes along with it.
