The Make, Take & Teach Swish! Basketball Game is a fun sports-themed activity for practicing common vowel teams. When you download this activity you'll receive 144 basketballs with words containing ea, ee, oe, ui, oa, ie and ai vowel combinations. Students take turns choosing basketballs and reading the words. If a player picks the Swish! ball, he/she can choose 2 more basketballs. If the player chooses the "Penalty" ball, all the basketballs must be put back in the pile. The player with the most basketballs at the end of time wins the game. This game can be easily differentiated as you choose which vowel teams and how many basketballs to use.
This activity is printed single-sided to double-sided.
