PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Overview & Purpose
The student practices their spelling words for the story “Luke Goes to Bat” by Rachel Isadora while they have fun swinging at paper or soft baseballs to see how many words they can spell correctly and home runs they can hit!

This activity can be used for any spelling or vocabulary list for any subject.

It can also be used in different ways. For instance, use Wii Sports Baseball instead of a regular bat and ball.

Included is a Spelling Homerun Derby scorecard students turn in for class credit and to track evidence of student learning:
Spelling Homeruns (words spelled correctly)
Swinging Homeruns
Outs (words misspelled)*
*This makes a great study guide
