Dry Erase Marker
- Print out and laminate pages 1-6.
- Print out 1-5 copies of page 7. Cut out and crumple each snowball.
- Write your goal in each of the boxes on pages 1-5. For example, if you are working on categories, you could write Animals, Toys, Transportation, Food and School in the boxes. *Make sure to use a dry erase marker, so you can keep reusing them!
4. Hang pages 1-5 on a wall.
5. Have students stand in a line and take turns throwing a ‘snowball’ at the wall.
6. They must give an answer to whichever picture they hit (or are nearest to hitting). For example, if they hit ‘Animals’, they have to name an animal before it’s the next persons turn.
*Keep score using page 6! Have the students on individual teams or have them pair up. Give one point per answer.
* If you are working on articulation, place target words in each box. Have students say the word they hit 5X.
*Address plurals or address multiple goals!
*Each snowball has a number on it. Have students open up the snowball and come up with the corresponding number of answers. This should be for older or more advanced groups.
That’s all there is to it! Having a snowball fight in your classroom will be easy, quick and engaging for students of all ages and abilities.
Have a snowball fighting time!
