A motivating game is included in this download. This simple game will allow the children to be engaged in the activity, while practicing /r/ in words. Children can put the /r/ words in sentences to increase the skill level.
DIRECTIONS : Play a game of baseball while practicing the sound /r/. Place the stack of /r/ word cards in the center of the table. Mix the bonus cards and the strike/foul cards in the pile. Place the game pieces, for each player, on home base on the baseball field/board. Children take turns drawing cards from the pile, and saying words containing /r/. The teacher determines how many words each child must say per turn (e.g., 3 cards). After the child says the /r/ words, he/she move their game piece on the baseball field one base. Bonus cards help you move extra bases, and strike/foul cards allow extra practice on /r/. Keep track of the students’ runs/score in the baseball game on the scoreboard sheet. Whoever has the most runs wins!
2. You can print duplicates of the /r/ baseball cards and play Memory or Go Fish.
