Let's play a game with phonics and associated skills.
This tool is an interactive PDF file that incorporates decoding, spelling, morphing, and vocabulary skills.
The ultimate goal is to play a game of football. The game may be played in small groups and/or large groups using a SmartBoard or projecting onto a whiteboard/screen.
As with any sport, you need to practice before the actual game. The tool has a 6 x 6 matrix of specific skills, such as words with short a sound to syllabication of multi-syllable words. The play action (roll of the die) requires: Reading 1 word; Spelling 1 word; Reading 2 words; Spelling 2 words; Morphing 1 word; and defining 1 word. The play results section (roll of two dice) has results for both the offensive team and the defensive team. Example Fullback Run +10/-5.
Clicking on a matrix skill displays a wordwall with a 6 x 6 matrix with four targeted words per cell. The 6 x 6 matrix allows two dice to randomly select skills and words.
The student or team of students could practice specific skills and/or random skills.
Spelling skills may be integrated with my Spelling Tool on TpT and/or with the two online dictionaries linked within the tool. Likewise, vocabulary skills could also incorporate the use of the online dictionary.
As in football, their is a play clock. As the referee, you may set the limits on your play clock to encourage speed in using the supportive tools. As indicated above, these could be mastered during the daily practice sessions.
Special Note: You may also use the game board and create your own wordwalls. Or you may incorporate any skill such as math flashcards, social studies review questions, etc.... Just have fun practicing and having the Super Bowl.
