Cardio Spelling

Grade level: 2nd grade and up

Equipment:
• Poly Spots (Enough to put 4 spots with 4 students) (21026)
• Spelling Words on Cards/sheets
• Dry Erase Boards (21202)
• Dry Erase Markers
• Dry Eraser
• 6 hurdles (16720)
• 6 Exer-dice (16982)
• 6 balls to plank over
• A to Z Poly Spots (70061)

How to play:
• Split students into groups of 4
• At the start of each lane (group), the first student will start on their poly spot
• The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th students will be spaced out along the gym floor on their poly spot. Each spot has a different exercise/activity.
• To start, the students on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th poly spots start exercising. The teacher will give student 1 the spelling word; they look at the word and put it on the ground.
• Person 1 jogs to Person 2 and tells them the first letter of the spelling word, person 2 jogs to person 3 and tells them the letter and person 3 jogs to person 4 and tells them the letter. Person 4 then writes the letter down on the dry erase board (kind of like old school spelling).
• Once each person is told the letter, they do that exercise until they are visited again with the next letter
• After person 4 writes down the letter, they head back to the beginning to get the next letter and the process begins again. This occurs until the entire word is written.

Adaptation:
Do the entire word instead of each letter, instead of running to the next spot, do a locomotor movement, give several exercises at each spot.
