I don’t know about you, but my students are absolutely obsessed with basketball, especially NBA2K17! Many of my students create their own “ultimate fantasy team” online or at home on their gaming systems. This activity/player cards may be altered and used in a variety of ways. I have listed a few activity options below, but feel free to make this your own! I have also included a key containing the different types of player cards- ranking from least valuable to most valuable.
Students can earn players by completing tasks associated with each level of card or they can collect points to save up for players of their choice. I utilize the cards by having my students choose which level card they desire and then they have to complete the corresponding task. Additionally, if my students do not create a correct production- I choose the player for them.
Based on the level of card- student has to complete task associated with each card (easiest to hardest).
Earn a player card for each met target, student with the most cards wins! If assistance is needed- choose player at random for student.
Collect points for each accurate production. Student will “buy” players at the end.
Create your own game!
Player cards can be used as an incentive, or to have students practice producing player names and statistics (may be very tricky for those not familiar with basketball players!).
Based on the level of card- student has to produce target word/sound x amount of times.
Student can earn bronze card for producing sound at syllable level, silver card- word level, gold card- sentence level, blue /green cards- reading level, special color cards- pick a topic and use best speech in conversation. If assistance is needed- pick player at random for student.
Earn a player card for each good sound production. Student with the most cards wins!
Student collects points for each correct production. Student can “buy” players at the end of the session.
Create your own!
I have included a chart of tasks I require my students to complete for each level, but I have also included blank copies for you to customize for each group of students.
