Your little basketball fans will have tons of fun practicing their sight words with the Make, Take & Teach Swish! game. This activity contains the first 220 sight words from the Fry sight word list printed on basketballs. Students take turns choosing basketballs and reading the words. If a player chooses the Swish! ball, he/she can pick 3 more balls! Players must be careful not to pick the "Penalty" ball as all the balls must be put back in the pile. Play continues until time ends and the player with the most basketballs wins. This activity can be easily differentiated as you choose how many and which words to use.
Basketballs are printed single-sided to double-sided. Each basketball is labeled with a number corresponding to the Dolch sight word lists 1-9.
