Your little basketball fans will love the Make, Take & Teach basketball themed activities for learning and practicing sight words. When you download this file you will receive five interactive sight word activities perfect for either independent centers or small group instruction. The following activities are contained within this download:
4-In-A-Row: There are nine differentiated 4-In-A-Row game boards corresponding to the Dolch 220 sight words contained within this download. This activity allows for multiple practice opportunities. The first player to get four of his/her colored chips in a row wins the game! Game boards are printed with directions on the back of each board.
Race to the Top: Players take turns rolling the die and reading the words on their game board. The first player to complete a column on their game board is the winner. Game boards are printed with directions on the back of each board.
Sight Word Game Boards: There are nine game boards corresponding to the Dolch sight word lists contained in this file. Simply glue the game board templates on a file folder and then laminate. You'll have nine ready made game boards which can be used for years and years!
Climb & Slide: This activity is a variation on an old classic game. Students try to be the first player to reach the end. If their marker lands on a slide, they must move down levels. If the marker lands on a ladder, the marker can be moved up.
Swish!: The Make, Take & Teach Swish! activity is ideal for independent centers. This is a fast paced game which allows for multiple practice opportunities. Students take turns choosing basketballs and reading the words. If a player chooses a "Swish!" ball, he/she can choose 3 more balls. If the player picks the "Penalty" ball all the balls must be put back in the pile.
