To begin, give students a full or half sheet of paper. I handed each student a sight word to write on his or her paper and then checked to make sure the word was spelled correctly.
Once all students are finished, I call everyone to the carpet and have students form two lines on opposite sides of the carpet. Then, they face each other, crumble their paper into a ball and get ready to throw their snowballs.
I give students about 20 seconds to throw snowballs. Then, I have them freeze, pick up a snowball and read their word.
We repeat this a few times so students practice reading many words. I also have my students walk around and read their words to each other.
This can also be done using math facts, numbers, letters, spelling words etc. My students love doing this! What activities do you do to get your kiddos up and moving?
Here is a freebie for you! I love to do roll a sight word games in centers. I make dice by using a square block and writing the words with a sharpie. Click on the pictures below to download a copy!
