Once a month my school has an after school event for students to just "hangout" with their friends. We don't have a best buddies program at our school (wish we did) so this is our way to get students together to hang out with friends and enjoy some typical high school experiences. (Note: our students are also encouraged to participate in other school activities such as dances and what not. These are smaller events in addition to those all-school events.)
First, students had options to play catch with friends or do a craft. I had printed off footballs and had students work on those during work skills, cutting them out, and punching the holes so students could lace their footballs. Then I printed off these Design a Helmet coloring sheets.
Then we played a sports bingo game that I downloaded from Board Maker Share. I just changed a couple symbols because I'm assuming it was created in the UK and I didn't feel like explaining cricket or rugby!
(So frustrating when these pictures won't upload correctly - can't even tell you how many times I rotated it..)
Some students went a little overboard with the sugar and sprinkles, but hey, as long as they were having fun, right?
It went really well and I'm excited for our next event!
