Free Gaga Ball Rules Poster for Schools

Avoid playground disagreements. The post Free Gaga Ball Rules Poster for Schools appeared first on We Are Teachers.

The high-energy game of gaga ball has recently re-entered the recess playground scene. Some kids get pretty competitive when playing, so it’s a good idea to put clear rules in place to curb disagreements over fouls and other gameplay basics. That’s why we created this free Gaga Ball Rules poster for schools.

Hang the poster in classrooms, near the door leading out to the playground, or even directly on the exterior of your gaga ball pit. Tip: Be sure to laminate the poster! Regularly reviewing the rules with players helps make sure everyone’s on the same page. Plus it prevents anyone who’s on recess duty from needing to break up petty arguments in the pit.
