So this Monday we are going to do Super Bowl club with the Super Bowl being the following weekend. Our plans are posted below. Since we haven’t done the club yet, I won’t make any promises on this one. Read the rest of this entry »
I ’m sure many of you already know all about YLPlaybook, but if you don’t, you should check it out! It is a growing collection of games, mixers, run-ons, and all kinds of stuff. They are all tagged for easy review.
One thing I’m really impressed with about YLPlaybook is they really keep adding to their content. Some resources lose relevance of usefulness if they never add anything new, but YLPlaybook is doing a great job adding new content.
Here some games I saw recently that I thought were pretty good:
As the semester gets rolling, so many club teams are sitting down to plan clubs. On YLHelp.com there are plenty of clubs you can check out. To make it easier I have put together a whole semester plan of clubs using existing plans on YLHelp.com. In case you need more, I did this last year too. This year I make it a zip file for easier use. Enjoy!
PS If you want to send your club plans my way, I’d love to hear about them! smcgever (at) yahoo.com
One of our last clubs in the semester is our “best of” club. I look back at our songs, our mixers, our games, our skits and I put them on a poster. Then for a couple weeks I have kids vote on their favorite ones. Then I pick kids to run them. We also have a student share his or her story.
It really sets kids up for success because they have already seen how the mixer/game/skit works. Also it is a nice break for our leaders near the end of the semester. Though sometimes it is more work to help the students Also it adds buy-in because the kids are looking forward to seeing what they voted for. For the songs I played guitar and picked different kids to lead each song.
Here are our plans from a week ago… Enjoy!
