Product Description
Have fun reviewing parts of speech while playing Trashketball with your students this winter! While reading about holidays and festivals including Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Chinese New Year, and the Sapporo Snow Festival, this game helps students review parts of speech including nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions. To play this exciting game in your classroom, all you need is the ability to project a Power Point presentation, a ball (soft texture), some dark tape, and a trash can.

In this game, there are five rounds. In each round, students identify a part of speech in the context of a sentence. The sentences increase in difficulty and complexity throughout the game. For an extra challenge, the teacher may ask students for additional identifications (e.g., common vs. proper noun, active vs. being verbs, nouns modified by adjectives and adverbs, and prepositional phrases).

Research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and this activity motivates students further by tapping into their love of sports. Using heterogeneous groups to play a game with friendly competition is an excellent way to meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success.

This Power Point presentation includes the following:
-review slides
-game slides
-rules for the students
-teacher instructions
-answer key
