Winter is a time a time when we think about snow – sledding, snow angels, snowball fights! Unfortunately, (or fortunately!), not all of us live in a place that gets snow in the winter. Here is a way to bring a sight word snowball fight into your classroom while helping your students master those important literacy skills!
This sight word snowball fight is simple and fast to prep. All you need is some white paper and a marker!
Take the paper and write one sight word on each paper. You can even have your students complete this task. Take the paper and crumple it up into a snowball and now you have sight word snowballs!
I like to play fun music while the kids toss the snowballs around the room. When the music stops, so do they! Students pick up the nearest snowball and read the sight word. When the music begins again, they crumple it back up and continue the sight word snowball fight.
This activity can easily be tweaked for different subject areas – you can draw shapes, write numbers, put math equations, CVC words, and much more!
I hope you enjoy this warmer version of a snowball fight!
