This is a game board with a basketball theme focusing on the use of synonyms. Two students take turns rolling a dice to move that number of spaces. Once the student lands on a particular space, he/she will have to use one of the words correctly in a sentence. Then they have to use the other word in the same sentence. If the students determines that the two words are synonyms and both fit in the sentence correctly, then he or she will stay on that spot. In the event that the words are not synonyms, the player has to move back two spaces. The first player to make 2 baskets wins the game! This game is intended for 1-3 grades and can be used as a literacy center or practice.
