Sight Word Baseball

Sight Word Baseball
Classroom with designated bases
Dolch word flash cards
An empty box covered with paper and packing tape. Each side of the box needs a word that relates to baseball on it (1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base, home run, out, out).

Split your class or group into 2 teams. Then show the player of the first team the flashcard. The student reads the word and then you pitch them the box. He/She hits the box with their hand. The class/group reads the ball and the player moves to the correct location. The next player goes and the same process continues unit that team gets 3 outs. The next team is up to bat and the others are in the field.

The students in the field should be practicing reading their flashcard pack with a partner so they are ready to go when they are up to bat.
