    Q1: Do You include world games in your instructional year? Are they integrated or a Unit? If you don't why not? #espechat

  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:07 PM EDT
    A1: World games are a huge part of my MS #PhysEd program. They are integrated and used as units since I share my facilities with three other teachers. #espechat
  • EPEWCP Mar 13 @ 8:07 PM EDT
    A1: I just introduced Patintero as my first ever exposure to world games. A huge success! #espechat
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:07 PM EDT
    A1: I integrate world game throughout-the year mixing them into the various#TGFU game categories to use to best address tactical issues #espechat
  • LovePrimaryPE Mar 13 @ 8:08 PM EDT
    A1 Not too many world games for me. Would love to start to intro some each year #espechat
  • pewithmrc Mar 13 @ 8:08 PM EDT
    A1) I currently do not. When instarted at my school 3 years ago the kids basic skills were way behind so i have been playing catch up. Looking to add new things going forward. #espechat
  • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:08 PM EDT
    A1: I've played Sabakiball for the past three years - learned it from a local PD and it seems to be a growing worldwide popular game #espechat
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:08 PM EDT
    Awesome! #espechat

    Hopefully we can help you with that tonight #espechat
    In reply to @LovePrimaryPE
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:09 PM EDT
    A1 Games around the World is my theme for the year. I have included some here and there before but this year a sport or game from another country that my Ss have never played is the way we are learning all skills/standards. #espechat
    In reply to @smartintahoe
  • rich_wiles - Moderator Mar 13 @ 8:09 PM EDT
    A1. Throughout the year and in modules/units linked to curriculum in school system. Amazing PBL this Olympics year #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Mar 13 @ 8:09 PM EDT
    Sara Wood in NYC. It was snowing in Times Square this morning! 🌨 #espechat
  • PerkettPE Mar 13 @ 8:09 PM EDT
    A1) We have started using some. Sepak Takraw is one that the students enjoyed during one of our net games lessons. #espechat
  • SeanPasieka Mar 13 @ 8:09 PM EDT
    A1. no world games here. though I do have aussie rules planned for later in the year #espechat
  • EPEWCP Mar 13 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    My exact feeling! #espechat
    In reply to @LovePrimaryPE
  • smsandino Mar 13 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    A1 Just started this year by mixing in cricket 🏏! Definitely want to keep it going and weave them in as I see them fit in under a #TGfU umbrella that I’m working on or even an outcome I want to include/hone in on #espechat
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    That one isn't on my list. I will have to look it up! #espechat
    In reply to @PEbyMrE
  • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:11 PM EDT
    Check it out! Very similar to Handball, I usually do the two sports one after the other; my Ss love it more than Handball & ask for it a lot #espechat

  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:13 PM EDT
    I love using them to both challenge my students who are athletic and engage my students who have decided they are not good at traditional sports they have played #espechat

    Almost time to depart from question 1 and prepare for the arrival of question 2, #espechat
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    This has been the overriding benefit for me too.#espechat
    In reply to @smartintahoe
  • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    Did you play with noodles or with mini sticks? #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE, @rich_wiles
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    Q2: What is your favorite world game to teach your students, and why? #espechat
  • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:16 PM EDT
    A2: Curling would have to by mine because of how quickly they understood the rules & language as well as how zealous they are to play it; even if it's Rock & Rings (coming for a day this year) or Human Curling #espechat
  • pewithmrc Mar 13 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    A2) good question, hoping to have a couple favorites after this chat. #espechat
    In reply to @smartintahoe
  • SeanPasieka Mar 13 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    A2. Contrary to my A1, I have done cricket before…love playing it indoors. walls and tennis ball keep the game lively. I love that the game is play 360* - no something seen in the most traditional games #espechat
  • erik_myer Mar 13 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    Hey everyone! A1. Have not done world games in a number of years. #espechat
  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    A2: My favorite world game is brännboll, a striking and fielding game from Sweden. It's the most inclusive sport I've taught and played. My 2nd and 3rd faves are ringette and Ki-o-Rahi. #espechat
  • EPEWCP Mar 13 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    A2: So far I have only taught Patintero. It was a perfect fit both for what I was already teaching and also because I have Ss from the Philippines. #espechat
  • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    I'll have to try that one day before Spring Break because I know my kids would go nuts for Sled Hockey - not sure my mini sticks would last long #espechat

    Good Evening! My name is Mark Mullis K-2 Pe Teacher. Thank you for the opportunity to hang out with you. #espechat
  • rich_wiles - Moderator Mar 13 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    A2. Hopscotch from different countries with k-2 and cricket, pétanque. Teach more jamician cricket over English/India game. #espechat
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    A2: I have a few love the engagementI see in Ki-O-Rahi, the simplicity of Ringo is great for teaching basic Net and wall concepts, Brannbol and Pesapallo change up things for kids not interested in Baseball for striking and fielding #espechat
  • MDPhysEd Mar 13 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    A2: Bocce: In Maryland Bocce is part of the Corollary sports leagues, so an international game, underhand pattern extension and an into to HS varsity sports #espechat
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    The best game we played this year was Kho Kho from India. A team tag game that requires teamwork to play well. The speedy kids in class couldn't beat slower kids who used better strategy. So cool to see. Used it with 3rd-5th. #espechat

  • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    A2: Lacrosse - it is Canada's National Summer Sport but lots of my Ss have never seen or played it being from immigrant families - they love it because it's a novel game #espechat
  • smsandino Mar 13 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    A2 Hmm 🤔, Skyros can be fun because it teaches movement off the ball (can’t move w ball in their hands), can add loads of secondary rules (time alloted before throwing, adding skills such as punting, adding safe zones, etc.), minimal equip! 1/2 #espechat
  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    @smartintahoe can help you modify it for elementary students! #espechat

    Oooo haven’t heard of this one there will be a resource question towards the end hope you can share one for this! #espechat

    A2: Played a modified version of Lagori with my 1st and 2nd graders. It's a traditional "playground game" from India. #espechat
  • smsandino Mar 13 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A2b Cricket was also fun this year because I saw all of my baseball minded ss challenges in the cognitive way, striking all of a sudden wasn’t so easy, running with a bat was 🤯. Adding the social emotional component was huge for me, it was a big focus for us 2/2 #espechat
  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    Seth, you and I have talked about Kho Kho, but the rules we had were too confusing. I bet Lisa can help us now! #espechat

    Q3: Do you discuss the origin and cultural significance of the world games you teach? If so is there one that you love sharing the story behind the game? #espechat
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:24 PM EDT
    I also used a TGfU approach and invented lead up games. I am hoping to present about it this fall at @MOAHPERD convention. Can definitely share resources before then.#espechat

  • SeanPasieka Mar 13 @ 8:24 PM EDT
    A3. No not much more than where its is from/most popular #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Mar 13 @ 8:25 PM EDT
    A2 Ampe is a quick game to teach and easy for any age group. Great for large groups and when I need a few minutes to set something up. We don’t clap, we just do theee jumps. https://t.co/nr9QnRd0TT #espechat

    Q3: Yes, absolutely discuss the origin and significance. My Ss need to recognize and understand the diversity of the world. #espechat

    A3: Yes, absolutely discuss the origin and significance. My Ss need to recognize and understand the diversity of the world. #espechat
  • PerkettPE Mar 13 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    A3) I don’t use alot of discussion time if we do one, but I will use informational handouts for students sometimes if they are interested in the activity. #espechat
  • EPEWCP Mar 13 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    A3: I did share where Patintero came from. With later classes I was able to share that the mom of the Ss from there was so excited because that is what she played everyday from 1st-HS. #espechat
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    A3: Yes my favorites Ki O Rahi here is a link to the story of Ki O Rahi https://t.co/dtf9zq1a0n #espechat
  • GingerAaron Mar 13 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    I'm actually introducing that tomorrow. I'm a bit worried that my kids will be able to catch on quickly. #espechat
    In reply to @SaraWoodPE, @smartintahoe
  • 12rlowe Mar 13 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    A2 lacrosse and curling- use Rocks and Rings for this one as we have no facility close enough to the school to use. #espechat
  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    A3: I believe that all games are "world games," but, yes, I discuss the origin and significance of each game and how they relate to what we are learning. (Maybe it would be helpful to define world games?) #espechat
  • EPEWCP Mar 13 @ 8:27 PM EDT

    A3. I have done that. I usually try to give a little historical background on all games I play. #espechat

    I asked her, and she is working it out with getting time off work to spend a day with me. Can't wait! #espechat

  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A3 Instead of the usual soccer unit, we learned Cuju, the ancient form of soccer where modern soccer comes from. That gave students the understanding we were starting at the beginning not just with skills but with the beginning of the game. #espechat

  • SaraWoodPE Mar 13 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A3 if I taught more world games, I would. Being in nyc, we have new learners from all over. I’d like to learn more about my students cultures and teach games from there. #espechat
    In reply to @smartintahoe
  • coachsandsmark Mar 13 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    A2) It's not really a "world" game but my kids love Quidditch #espechat
  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    A3b: Last year, during brännboll, my Ss and I wanted to know if the name of the game really did translate to "burn ball." So, I asked a few friends on Twitter, and @KenForde asked his Ss who are from Sweden. They were thrilled! #espechat

  • 12rlowe Mar 13 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    Use Rocks and Rings about every 3 years to keep the Ss exposed to the sport and the local college ( @UofA_AugVikings )has a junior program that I like to promote as best I can. #espechat
    • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:28 PM EDT

    I tried it last year and it went OK. I feel I did it a little more complicated than it needed to be. #espechat
    In reply to @coachsandsmark
  • SaraWoodPE Mar 13 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    Agreed. We start with just jumping solo to get their feet right, then jumping with a partner, then deciding who is straight or opposite and counting points. Once someone gets to three, raise your hand to find a new partner #espechat

    The journey continues with question 4 ... #espechat
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:31 PM EDT
    Ampe was the very first game we played this year. Have them just practice jumping the rhythm before even trying to stick out a foot. #espechat

    A3) Teaching Tinikling, the history is awesome and the high population of Philipino students helps buy-in. #espechat

    Same! I finally got to it this year! #espechat
    In reply to @coachsandsmark, @WSchultz44, @MrHairPhysEd
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:32 PM EDT
    Q4: How do you connect world games to other activities your students learn in class, to allow for a transfer of knowledge? #espechat
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:33 PM EDT
    I have not heard of Rocks and Rings. Will look it up. #espechat
    In reply to @12rlowe, @UofA_AugVikings
  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:33 PM EDT
    A3.2: Individual, dual, or team sports/activities that are new and unfamiliar to my Ss and are considered "non-traditional" or "cultural" to the #PhysEd community. #espechat
  • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:33 PM EDT
    A4: Keep it simple by figuring out what type of game say Sabakiball is (invasion) & how strategies may differ or stay the same #espechat
    In reply to @smartintahoe
  • SeanPasieka Mar 13 @ 8:33 PM EDT
    A4. I always draw the tie in to the basic skill and ideas. Cricket is batting and hitting to open spaces #espechat
  • rich_wiles - Moderator Mar 13 @ 8:34 PM EDT
    A3.2 It has to link to the country of origin and is played traditional area #espechat
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:34 PM EDT
    A4: I utilize the games to show how all Net and wall, Striking and fielding, etc are connected and how concepts from one can help you be successful in others. While respecting what makes each game special. #espechat
  • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    A program that comes into schools to teach Curling. https://t.co/iXs0ZGmogh #espechat
    In reply to @pewithmrc, @12rlowe
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    A4 only see my Ss once/wk so we are either playing the game/sport or learning skills/playing lead up games to play full version. Not really time for anything else.#espechat
    In reply to @smartintahoe
  • smsandino Mar 13 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    A3 I shared a bit for cricket, they got a kick out of my fun facts such as the longest cricket game. Cue in ss reactions “what!? Did they sleep?? 😮” I think it’s part of it, the tid bits you get to add so ss put on different lenses #espechat
  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    A4: Using world games allows me to teach familiar concepts/ideas/skills through games & activities that are unfamiliar to my Ss. They make deeper connections, are more willing to accept T feedback, & see how activities from the same TGfU categories relate to each other. #espechat
  • rich_wiles - Moderator Mar 13 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    A4. World Games link very well with a Standards based program. Also links well with PBL and Inquiry in school. All movements connect we just have to find links. #espechat
  • coachsandsmark Mar 13 @ 8:36 PM EDT
    A4) Check in and see if Ss can find similarities to other games they are familiar with #espechat
  • PerkettPE Mar 13 @ 8:36 PM EDT
    A4) I will try to tie the world games in with similarities to games they are familiar with. #espechat
  • EPEWCP Mar 13 @ 8:36 PM EDT
    A4: My what for the lesson tells Ss what to focus on, and the why often ties it to other things we have done or will do to help with transfer. #espechat
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A4b: games like Brännboll allow runners to choose when they advance bases which provides better scaffolding for players to learn to make base running decisions. This allows for success later in other games #espechat
  • PEbyMrE Mar 13 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A4cont: Could also make Ss think differently during a type of game than they may be used to #espechat

    Yes! I love having the Ss try to find the connections before I point them out. It seems to sink in so much better that way. #espechat

    This could be a “turn and talk” or exit ticket moment. Have students connect to the theme of the game, how do they know it aligns with the concept, etc. #espechat

    Q5: Have you explored games that connect to students cultures in your classes? If so how did those students respond? #espechat
  • smsandino Mar 13 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    A3b A sport or activity that isn’t the everyday for my ss, it’s novel and unknown to them whether it’s individual/team setting but still has that still transfer very much embedded #espechat
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    Yes, can definitely do #espechat

    A5 I’m going to inquire on this with a student survey soon. I’ve got a lot of good ideas from this chat so far #espechat

    A5: When I did, the Ss didn't know about it, but the parents were excited. Now the mom is going to come spend a day with me to work with classes. I think I might us it at my Bring Your Parent to PE Week. #espechat
  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    A5: Two years ago my Ss visited assessment stations while playing Ki-o-Rahi. I asked if they or a member of their family at home spoke a language other than English. If I remember correctly, 32 Ss out of 60 were able to add a language to the list. Very few repeats. #espechat
  • SeanPasieka Mar 13 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    A5. engaged in conversations with some Ss from India about Kabaddi….they were super excited to share what they knew. Never followed through with modified version of the game. #espechat
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    A5 only accidentally. I learned more about some of my Ss by using this theme. #espechat

    A4 I used Cricket as an activity to transfer the striking and fielding skills. It may LOOK different and require sone slight changes in biomechanics but the concept is still there. You may find success in one, yet you may also find challenge in another #espechat
  • GHSaysRockChalk Mar 13 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    @smartintahoe It actually might have been Kabaddi (pronounced cubbuh-dee), not Kho Kho, that confused us. #espechat

    A5. I really started to develop world games at school because of military base alignments. We have more officers coming to DC for work and they move into are. I have had students from all walks sand places. #espechat
  • erik_myer Mar 13 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    A5. I did a warm up game using timer tops from @FlaghouseInc and an aide for one of my students told me about a game she played in India with tops. Bay blades were huge with the kids at the time so we talked about different types of tops and what cultures play with them #espechat
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    A5: I have a good sized group of students from the Philippines and when I introduced them to Patintero a student who is usually disengaged was offering to help me teach it set it up etc. He shared his sister played on the HS team back in the Philippines #espechat
  • coachsandsmark Mar 13 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    A5) Yes! It's easy to get a poll from students using google forms. See what cultures represent your classroom. The buy-in is amazing. 7th grade dance is perfect. I taught Hawaiian (Hukilau), Philipino (Tinikling), Mexican (El Jarabe Tapatio), and Jewish (Horah) #espechat
  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:45 PM EDT
    I have always thought this was so cool to learn about your students! Such a good way to better know your students! #espechat

    A4b The communication piece was alive in all of our striking/fielding activities. The beauty— it’s necessary ACROSS THE BOARD! #espechat
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:46 PM EDT
    Kabaddi is one I don't get. I was worried my Ss would cheat and breathe and then say, "No I didnt..." Also, looked like too much rough contact in YouTube videos I watched so I taught Kho Kho instead. #espechat

  • smartintahoe Mar 13 @ 8:46 PM EDT
    It’s a tricky game to modify but they would love it maybe engage them in how to modify it #espechat

    Get yourself ready for some souvenirs question 6 is coming up! #espechat
  • smsandino Mar 13 @ 8:49 PM EDT
    A5 I think I graded upon the surface, it activated some prior knowledge as in “hey, I’ve seen this before” or “hey, my uncle in such and such country plays it.” Definitely want to dive into this at a greater extent! #espechat
  • SeanPasieka Mar 13 @ 8:49 PM EDT
    I have know idea what this is, nor many of the others. All noted and will be researched. #espechat
    In reply to @GHSaysRockChalk, @BermanLisa
  • BermanLisa Mar 13 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    One student said when we learned it she would use it instead of Rock Paper Scissors from then on so we have used it that way. Have also used it when kids are antsy waiting in a line. #espechat
