Basketball Bonanza---The season is here!

Since we only have 10 school days left before the holidays, I thought I would get a head start on basketball season!   I live a quarter of a mile from the UNC Tarheel Dean Dome, so it's big here.  Basketball nearly shuts down education in the local schools when the NCAA tournaments are going on.

Many of my students can barely speak, but they know basketball.  I found a great book on Tarheel Reader. It's not adapted, but if your students are wanting to learn words like 'layup' and 'dribble', you may want to take them to the playground and demonstrate.  No Boardmaker icon can really show it.  This is actually a nice reading book for older students reading on about a first grade level.

 Click here to download this book on Tarheel Reader.

If you are a Duke fan, sorry!!!!!

I have taken the plunge and created some other items for basketball fans that are posted on TPT for a modest price.  This includes 'Basketballs Everywhere' and 'Basketball Preposition Bingo'.  Download individually, or get a discounted price for two.

You can get Basketball Prepositions Bingo HERE

You can get Basketballs Everywhere HERE

You can get these bundled for a discount HERE

Important note:  I know some of you don't have funds, and all of your students are poor.  If you feel you need the bingo game and Basketballs Everywhere, but can't afford them, send me an email.  I'll send a link for downloading, no questions asked.   If these help children become better communicators, then I'm happy.
