Directions

  • Getting Ready

    Setting Up Teams
    • Two teams of two players: Each player has his or her own mitt. Give each
    team half the balls.
    • Four teams of two players: One player is the “pitcher.” The pitcher throws the
    ball, but does not have a mitt. The other player is the “catcher.” The catcher
    uses the mitt. Children switch positions when they are done. Give each team
    one-fourth of the balls.

    Play Ball!
    Give each team a container of balls. Have teams switch containers when
    they are done.

    All-Star Games
    Children have a ball learning alphabet and phonics skills with these fun
    toss-and-catch games!
    Depending on the age and experience of your students, they can play these
    games with or without adult assistance.

    Letter Line Up
    Players take turns tossing balls to one another, naming the letters shown.

    Ace the Sound
    Players take turns tossing balls to one another, saying letter sounds, such as
    /b/, /c/, /d/, etc. Note: Play with consonant balls only.

    Beginning Sounds Catch
    Players take turns tossing balls to one another, naming words that begin with
    the sounds of the letters shown. Note: Play with consonant balls only.

    sounds of the letters shown. Note: Play with consonant balls only. In addition,
    you may wish to remove letters such as c, h, j, q, v, w, y, and z.

    Middle Sounds Catch

    the balls to one another, saying words that have the target vowels in the middle.
    Short- and long-vowel words are permitted.

    Round Robin
    This game is best played with adult supervision. Have four children stand in a
    circle with an adult. Toss a ball to Player 1, who identifi es the letter shown.
    Player 1 throws the ball to Player 2, who identifi es the letter’s sound. Player 2
    throws the ball to Player 3, who says a word that begins with the letter.
    Player 3 throws the ball to the last player, who says a word that ends with the
    letter, and then tosses the ball back to you. Play rounds until all letters have
    been used. Note: Play with consonant balls only.
