Did you watch the S.M.A.R.T. Birthday theme in action? With a little creative thinking (maybe a run to the dollar store or Target) and these free downloads, you can create your own set for your classroom. Having thematic twists in a birthday gift bag is guaranteed to create excitement for S.M.A.R.T. We recommend the following additions to S.M.A.R.T. core activities.
Slap/Creep Track cards: Download these two different sets of cards and choose what is most appropriate for your class.
Balance Beam: Add little birthday hats or gift boxes with ribbon as objects to step over on the beam.
Hopscotch: See One S.M.A.R.T. Teacher for creative ideas
Learning Ladders: Colorful balloons can be laminated so that you can write age appropriate content on the balloons. Add sight words, numbers, CVC words, etc, for students to practice.
