Homerun Noun Sorting is great for independent literacy centers.
This game is designed to be an "envelope game." All of the pieces fit easily into a manila envelope for easy storage and independent play by the students year after year.
Full instructions on how to set up the envelope and how to play the game are included.
My students have played this game in class and they love it! It's easy for them go "grab and go" and includes a recording sheet for accountability and grading purposes.
Students read common nouns that are listed on the baseball game pieces and decide if it's a person, place, thing or animal, then sort them onto the correct mitt.
Many of the words are easily decodable for beginning readers and there are also more challenging words for your higher level readers. There are also blank baseballs for you to make your own game pieces. The students could also create their own for higher level learning. This game is easy for the students to understand and play independently, with very little directions needed.
It can be differentiated and used in many different ways.
**This game takes some preplanning and preparation, however, it's easy and the kiddos love it.
