Incorporate positive messages of understanding, respect, and responsible behavior during all-out playground play! Two packs are available to provide students with the correct-size balls depending on their ages.
Character on the Playground
Each pack of CharacterEd® playground balls comes with all the different balls you’ll need for major sports. As a part of furthering the CharacterEd® mission, all balls have character traits and definitions listed on them, helping you to incorporate character-building activities and positive messages into your PE class and recess. Examples include respect, honesty, sportsmanship, confidence, and tolerance. The word is listed on one side of the ball, with the definition on the other.
You can use these balls as traditional sport balls, or actually build games around those character traits. For example, you could assign a character trait ball to a station (dribbling, shooting, etc.) and have students first discuss that trait and how they could demonstrate it, then have them complete the skill at the station while demonstrating the trait as they work. After everyone at the station has had a turn, they can then switch to a different station, where they practice a new skill and trait.
All balls are available in Rainbow® color sets, which makes class organization easier than ever. These multiple colors can also help teachers easily set up team-based or relay activities.
