After reading the book, we discussed the word "sport", sportsmanship, and how the game is played. I did a simple fill in the blank writing activity with my kinders, but I have included a higher level reading activity for those children that need more challenge.
When the writing activity was over, my kiddos created a baseball player. I am NOT a template/pattern teacher, but for this activity, I DID give them a template to trace for the baseball player's head, body, and glove. I let them choose the colors for their uniforms, but you can tell that we live in Central Illinois... There was an overwhelming choice of Cubs blue and Cardinals Red! :)
This is such a cute and fun Spring activity! It will be free in my store for a limited time... so get it while you can!
