Sometimes, some of my boys are not quite as enthusiastic about our reading activities as much as the girls are.
However, if we’re reading about sports, especially football, my little guys get pretty excited.
With that in mind, I designed this football-themed -ick and -all word family packet.
It’s chock full of a variety of games, competitions, worksheets, word cards, and even a helmet and football “slider” craftivity.
Use the activities for centers, table top, early finishers, a sub folder, homework, or for whole-group assessing.
For one activity, students choose teams and then work either independently or with their group, to think of as many -all or -ick words before the timer rings. Each word is worth 1 point.
Get in some math practice, by having students figure out how many touchdowns & field goals they achieved with their word list. i.e. 7 words = 7 points = 1 touchdown. Any "extra" words can be counted to make a field goal.
A field goal = 3 points for 3 words. i.e. One team thought of 11 words. They scored 1 touchdown (7) and 1 field goal (3) and had 1 extra point left.
I don't know about you, but I LOVE combining literacy & math!
I’m Diane from Teach With Me hoping that word work with a football twist, will be just the thing to make practice especially fun.
