It's always fun to incorporate students' interests into learning activities. The Make, Take & Teach Touchdown! activity is a great way for our little football fans to practice reading words containing common consonant digraphs. When you download this activity you will receive 152 footballs with words containing the sh, ch, wh, and th digraphs. To play this game, students take turns choosing footballs and reading the words. Choose a "Touchdown" ball and the player can pick a few more balls, choose the "Penalty" ball and all the balls must be placed back. This game is perfect for either small group instruction or as a literacy center activity as it allows for both differentiation and multiple opportunities for response.
