My older students LOVE any type of reinforcement game where we keep up with points. Basketball season is the perfect time to pull out this fun reinforcement game which allows the students to keep up with their own points. Print out as many basketball courts as you need. Then, print, laminate and cut-out the balls. I recommend laminating the materials in order for them to last longer, but this is optional.
Suggested grades: 2nd-6th
When to use: Use as a reinforcement activity during articulation drills, expressive or receptive language tasks, fluency tasks, etc. It can also be used during social lessons for taking turns.
How to play: I have also included balls for fouls, out of bounds, and traveling. Each student is given a laminated basketball court page and draws balls out of a cup on their turn. Students draw basketballs and earn “points” (1,2 or 3). At the end of the game/session, students can add up their points to see who wins.
