This year my school has had SEVEN snow days!  It is March 1st and right now the weather man is SNOW DAY TAG on my way to school a couple of weeks ago.  The kids had a lot of fun with it.
saying it's been the 2nd snowiest winter ever in Michigan!  So, I thought of this game

Trick or Treat Relay - Halloween Game for P.E. class!

This week I did the "Trick or Treat Relay" with my classes as an activity at the end of class.  They all loved it!  This is a great game for all elementary age groups.  With K-2nd grade I always begin by first making sure they all understand what a relay means (taking turns doing something....being on a team, etc).  I also give points on my Squad Chart (see Rainbow Squad Chart) to teams who are following directions, listening, etc.  When a squad gets 10 points, I give them a small prize like a sticker or eraser.  We use squads for many other things in PE.....more on that later.

Click here for a printable direction page for the Trick or Treat Relay!  Please remember to make teams small, no more than four students so they are not waiting in line very long.  We want our students moving and exercising as much as possible during P.E. class!
