Conventions of Standard English
ELA Common Core Aligned
Fun for First grade
This Match Madness Matching Game/Activity is designed to reinforce ELA Conventions of Standard English skills that have already been taught or introduced.
Cut each card a part and laminate for reuse. The basketball stays the same but the corresponding card changes for each convention.
Then place each part in a sentence strip holder or a basket to be used at a Literacy Station or as Daily 5 Word Work.
Place the response sheets in a basket or on a clipboard for easy access.
Variations: This packet can also be a read and write the room activity where you place the cards
Around the room and students walk to look around the room to find the matches and write them on the response sheet. It can also be a game where you place 2 paper bags with the basketballs in one bag and the cards in the other bag. Students pick one card from each bag. If they pull a match they keep the card. Whoever has the most matches at the end of the game wins.
