The key to learning sight words is lots and lots of practice. Pair that sight word practice with a little basketball shooting and you have an interactive and fun way to learn.
Sight Word Practice Basketball Shooting
Full Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
This sight word basketball shooting game is super simple to set up and can be played by one child or a pair of kids.
- On each index card or piece of paper, write a sight word that your child needs to practice. Place near the player(s).
- Lay out the piece of brown felt. On one end of the “court” place a paper cup “basket” for each player.
- On the other end of the felt “court” place the orange “basketballs.”
Playing the Game
It’s time to play. The first player selects a sight word card to read. If the word is correctly read, the player gets to shoot a pom-pom ball to try and score a basket.
The next player gets a turn and play continues until there are no more “basketballs” left to shoot.
Each player counts their score by counting by twos for each ball in their basket. The highest score wins.
See, easy to set up and easy to play!
