Reflection: Student Ownership Sight Word Hopscotch - Section 2: Procedure


The first time we did this activity, we were outside for recess with several other classes.  Children from the other classes were curious and eagerly joined our groups. Now when we go outside, we try to draw at least one game so that children can continue to enjoy the activity with their friends from the other rooms.  I have begun to have my students write the words with the chalk in the squares before they play, and that has given them additional practice and ownership in “creating” the game. 

Here's an example of Sight Word Hopscotch

When we play indoors, we have to be careful not to tape the cards down with too much tape because it makes for a slippery spot on the game area. It is not a quiet activity, because often the children will chant for the child who is hopping and cheer for them when they get the words correct.
