predicting {this one's for the BOYS!}

Hello Friends! Happy Monday... {is there such a thing???}

Today we talked a whole lot about predicting... and the SUPER Bowl! Since I am a total girly girl and I know
N-O-T-H-I-N-G about football, I had to recruit my husband and some of my students to help me on this one. I'm sure you have seen this adorable football {can those two words be together?} craft created by the talented Teri at A Cupcake for the Teacher. When I first saw this craft, I knew I had to make it with my students... 
{and I didn't even know who was playing... who cares, right??!}

You can purchase the craft pattern from Teri's TpT and TN stores for only $1.00!

My boys got really into this activity! Finally... a craft they could relate to!

I had one little boy who pretty much convinced the whole class that the New England Patriots were going to be the winning team... he gave lots of good reasons... and since I don't know that much, I believed him.

Thanks, Teri, for such an awesome idea!! {If you haven't checked out her blog, you need to!}

How do you teach predicting to your students?


  1. It turned out so cute!!! Yay Mrs. Cupcake!

  2. Oh my goodness gracious! These are SO ADORABLE, and they look even cuter when they are all put together on that bulletin board. I love it! I bet the boys DID love this, and I'm sure the girls didn't mind it either.

    Too cute! I just saw this on Cupcake for the Teacher's blog, as well. I'm from Baltimore and my school went CRAZY last week about the Raven's game. I don't think my kids would appreciate it too much if I brought up the fact that Baltimore lost. I seriously think I'd still have some kids writing Baltimore, even though they lost. Ha! I'd probably cause a problem. Love, love, love it though!

    Thanks for sharing! As always, you are the absolute best!


  3. I just wanted to tell you that your blog seriously makes my day complete! I am currently student teaching and still a bit overwhelmed, but when I look at your blog I remember why I am doing this in the first place! Keep at it, your hard work is changing lives!

    Thanks for all of your helpful tips!


  4. this is so cute!! I don't anything about football either, I thought the Superbowl was already over! This bulletin board display looks great!


  5. This is adorable. Wish I had time to get this done before the Big Game.

  6. We made them today! They are soooooooo adorable :)
    I like how you did them in diffent colors. I had hubby research the exact unifor colors.

  7. Being a Patriots fanatic (legit obsessed) I LOVE this... and your student's response about Tom Brady. :) So going to have to do this with my firsties.

  8. Too cute!

  10. This is so great - I love it!!!!! :) I read the predictions to my husband and he agrees that Tom Brady is the best quarterback ever. All I'm thinking is Tom Brady the one who is married to Giselle? :)

  14. This is such a cute way to review predicting! I'm sure your kiddos loved it! Both Rebecca and I usually begin our predicting unit using Laura Numeroff's "If You Give a..." books! We also discuss/model what a good prediction is and what a bad prediction is.

    I just recently reviewed cause and effect using "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake" and posted this freebie on our blog. Check it out if you are interested. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!
