This fun game is aligned with 2nd grade Common Core standards (fluency and phrasing). Print two copies in color and laminate onto manila file folders. Each student will need a folder to play. Set up the folders to mimick the Battleship game board (use a paper clip to hold the tops together). Students place their battleships on the board horizontally. Students call out a phrase (in an attempt to hit the opponent's ship) and use the "hit" and "miss" game pieces to keep track of turns. The first person to sink all the ships (opponent's) wins! After the game, students may time each other reading the phrases and chart their times (helps to see increase in fluency).
