Motivating Students To Master Their Word Lists AND Now Even Easier For You To Edit For Your Own Word Lists
This is the ninth of 11 sets of ball words (Ping Pong Ball WORDS) used in my class to help students in my classroom master sight word lists. Each list is placed on a different type of sports ‘ball.’ Students work their way through each set of ball words by using the activities found here. Once mastered, they receive an official ‘ball champ’ certificate and the next list of ball words to start mastering. It is up to you how and if you reward your students when they master each new list. If you would like, I do have a set of FREE brag tags on my blog that you can use as an incentive. In my classroom, they get their name placed on the BALL CHAMP poster for each level and receive a small token from my treasure box for their hard work.

I love this system because I never have to beg my students to practice their ball words. It is an activity that is chosen above all others if there is free time.

In this first set you will find:
*Editable Ball Cards For Making Word Rings-Students use these cards on a ring to practice during reading, rest or free activity time. Make 4-5 sets so that there are plenty available.
*NEW TO THIS VERSION* Black and White Version of The Larger Editable Ball Cards for Making Word Rings.
*Editable Ball Cards to be used for your word wall-As the class masters this list of words, they are added to our word wall so that students can reference words they know when writing and so they are readily available for frequent review.
*Editable Ball Cards to be used for Ping Pong Ball slap-Lay the balls on the table or floor, a teacher or volunteer calls out a Ping Pong Ball word and students race to cover it with a flyswatter or by tossing a bean bag on it.
*Editable Ball cards for use in Smash
*NEW TO THIS VERSION* Editable Dough Cards
*Editable Ball cards for use in That’s a Match Game
*Editable Ball cards to be used for Ping Pong Ball Memory-This can be played on a table or in a small Target Dollar Bin pocket chart.
*Editable Small Ping Pong Ball word cards for use in Ball Words In A Bottle with recording sheet.-Students move the bottle around to ‘spy’ Ping Pong Ball words and record the ones they see.
*An Editable Ping Pong Ball I-Spy with recording sheet-Students search for hidden words. When they find them, they write them on the recording sheet and read them to a partner.
*Editable Ping Pong Ball Champ Certificate-Print, complete, laminate and present to your students as they pass their Ping Pong Ball word list.
*Editable Take home list of Ping Pong Ball words.- Send this home for student to work on with parents.
*Progress monitor sheet to track when students pass each level of ball words.
*New Personalized Ping Pong Balls that are automatically populated as progress monitoring sheet is input. Can be used for data walls or to post as students master word lists.
*NEW by request: Ping Pong Ball Champ Mini posters and larger poster for use as part of your data wall. Students can progress ‘clips’ from one poster to the next as they master word lists.

Please note: making a product editable does have it’s limitations. This packet will not accommodate words that are longer than 8 letters long. If you need the original Powerpoint editable version that allows you to change fonts and such, please grab it from the zip file. It is not as user friendly as this version, but it will allow you to change fonts and text sizes.
