Slam-Dunk Guide Words!

Download the basketball hoop card and basketball, the "student instruction sheet" as well as the "student worksheet". Write 2 guide words, found in a dictionary, at the top of each basketball hoop card. Write a word that would fit between those 2 guide words on the basketball itself. Make as many copies of the basketballs and cards as you have need for. Laminate and place in center. Cut a slit along the dotted lines above the net. This is where the "basketball" would fit in.

A student in this center would lay the basketball hoop cards in front of him. Looking through the basketballs, he would find a word that would fit inbetween the 2 guide words at the top. Student then places the ball into the cut slit.

When the student feels he has answered all of the cards correctly, he must then transfer his answers to the corresponding worksheet. He can then turn this sheet into the teacher for correction, if needed.
