Phonics Basketball

You will need Nerf basketball and a clean trash can. Divide the class into two teams, lining them up. Place a trash can several feet away from the beginning of the line. Flip a coin to see which team goes first and then give the first player a phonetically spelled word, such as PORCH. If he spells the word correctly, hand him the basketball and allow him to shoot. (A variation...Use colored tape to put down two different lines and allow the student to choose which line to take his shot...the farther line is worth 3 points, the closer line is worth 2.) If the student doesn't spell the word correctly, allow the other team to "steal" by spelling it correctly. If the person from that team spells it correctly, he automatically scores one point and then, the next person on THAT team is up.  Record basket points and "stolen" points. Set a time limit for the game or just go through the lines once or twice. Winning team is the one with the most points.

Happy Teaching!
