Place basketballs face down on center court.
First player picks one basketball.
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. (die included; just fold and tape/glue)
The player moves the team game piece according to what the die says:
1 points = a Foul Shot

First 96 Dolch Words on basketballs. 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 basketballs, and then turn them face up and facing you in your paper tray and print out the plain basketball 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 regular 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 12 words your students need to study, and print out 2 sets of each sheet to make matching pairs. Place those 24 cards face down in 4 rows of 6. 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 basketballs 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.
