    One thought on “Clothesline Clues to Sports People Play”

    1. Good book for teaching younger students about inference. I appreciated the fact that both girls and boys were included, as well as some more unusual sports. Could segue into a writing project where students choose a sport or activity and draw the items needed for it, then have classmates guess the activity.

    2. A book told in rhyme, the clues to the sports people play hanging on the clothesline. A catcher's mitt and bat, a uniform in gray, cap, ball, and bases, what sport does he play? Of course the answer is baseball and children will love to shout out their knowledge of each uniform.This would be a good book for a unit on physical activity and sports.It would be a good book for a child who is obsessed with sports and will only read books about sports.It is also a good book to expose children to sport [...]

    3. The first pair of pages shows gear from a sport and gives a rhyming clue to the sport. The next page provides the answer and shows people playing the sport. Great for introducing sports, playing games, or making inferences. Sports include: baseball, soccer, tennis, fencing, basketball, football, and archery. Players include both men and women.

    4. CLOTHESLINE CLUES TO SPORTS PEOPLE PLAY by Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook is a rhyming picture book that engages young readers in a sports guessing game.Each two-page spread shows clothes and equipment along with text information. Readers are asked about the sport the items represents. The next page reveals the answer. The sports players represent a mixture of genders and races. Although a variety of body shapes are represented, no noticeably disabled players are included.A companion to Clo [...]

    5. Rhyming text provides clues in the form of a given sports' uniform and accessories to encourage readers to guess which sport the characters play. I really liked the inclusion of fencing and archery among more commonly played sports like baseball and football.Nice read aloud with a racially diverse cast of characters. Pencil and mixed media illustrations finished digitally. PreK-2.

    6. I love Clothesline Clues to Jobs People Do, but the concept just doesn't translate as well to sports. You end up with odd things, like shoulder pads and a baseball mitt, hanging from a clothesline. Also, some of the sports equipment displayed underneath the clotheslines makes guessing the sport too easy.

    7. Rhyming text is used to describe the clothes and balls on a clothesline for different sports and kids need to guess what sport it is. I'm on a constant hunt for sports picture books and this one has bright illustrations and is great for a sports story time although some of the clues are super easy because you can see the basketball// soccer ball,Strongly recommended for a preschool storytime.

    8. Grades Pre-K -2. There is another book in the series about jobs people do. Children view items hung on a clothesline or left in the yard and can infer which sport is played by the person who lives there. Good for building topic-specific vocabulary (quiver, foil, mitt, helmet, etc).

    9. These rhyming verses will inspire close reading and making inferences. The meter's a bit rough for me in spots, but I like the riddle aspect, and I think kids will, too.
