★ 30 Page Download Includes:
• 92 Dolch Sight Words on Baseballs
• Directions Sheet
• 96 Plain Baseball Backings**
• 2 Sizes of Baseball Fields
• 2 baseball dice to determine play
• 1 baseball spinner
• 3 Optional Recording Sheets to write words read
• 2 Optional Sight Words All-Star Awards

**Blank baseballs are included so that you can glue together a math fact football and a blank football… white side to white side. OR Print pages 11-18 (word footballs). Then place the baseballs back into the printer’s paper tray, face up and facing you, and print pages 19-26. The plain baseballs will print out on the back of the fact baseballs. Now cut into rectangular cards on paper cutter.


Divide players into 2 teams.
Each team has a token/game piece.
Place balls face down on pitcher’s mound.
First player picks one ball.
If the player reads the word correctly (and uses it in a sentence if you’d like), s/he tosses the die or spins the spinner. (dice and spinner included; just fold and tape/glue) Players may be required to write each word on the optional recording sheets.
Recording sheets can be laminated for students to write in erasable markers, or copied in grayscale for students to record in pencil.
The player moves the team game piece according to what the die or spinner says:

1 base = a single
2 bases = a double
3 bases = a triple
4 bases = a homerun
Word misread = an out

Each time a run scores, students keep track on the scoreboard.

Note: To make the game progress more quickly, you can change the number of outs to 1 per inning rather than 3.
More Ways To Play

First 92 Dolch Words on baseballs. Prints nicely in black and white as well. You can print back to back… it’s designed to match up perfectly. Just print out the word baseballs, and then turn them face up in your paper tray and print out the plain baseball backings. Then, just take each sheet to the paper cutter and cut each sheet into 12 square cards.

Game 1: Select the cards that are appropriate for your students. Place cards face down in a pile. Students roll a die to see how many cards they can pick. Students keep each card that they correctly read. (You might require students to use each word in a sentence as well.) The game is over when all baseballs have been drawn. The winner is the student with the most baseballs.

Game 2: Select 10 words your students need to study, and print out 2 sets of each sheet to make matching pairs. Place those 20 cards face down in 4 rows of five. Students play Memory or Concentration, turning over 2 cards at a time and keeping them if they have the same word. The game is over when all cards are gone. The winner is the student with the most baseballs. Keep cards that belong together in individual baggies.

Game 3: Select the words that a group of students needs to practice. Students line up the baseballs as though they are on a path. This creates a “follow the path” type game. Each student has a game token. Students take turns rolling a number die, moving that number of spaces and reading the word that is on the space where the student lands.
