There is nothing better than making learning that involves moving and fun. This snowball fight learning activity is guaranteed to be a hit with your students. They will be having so much fun that they will have no idea that they are learning in the process.
Preparing Snowball Fight Learning
There are two ways you can get ready for your snowball fight. The first way is perfect for when you are in a time crunch. If you are doing a sight word review, write down the sight words on pieces of paper and scrunch the paper up into a ball.
The other option would be using the editable freebie that can be found below. You will need to download KG Red Hands in order to do this option. You will open the document in Adobe and then you can type in the letters (or whatever you are reviewing).
Snowball Fight Learning Ideas
The possibilities are endless for Snowball Fight Learning and can be completely tailored to your students. You can have students review the alphabet.
You can have students review number recognition.
Or even sight words.
If you are practicing addition and subtraction, you can have them review that.
You can honestly have them do anything and everything. Whatever you are working on at the moment, turn it into a snowball fight.
Doing Snowball Fight Learning
If you are wanting a little bit of friendly competition, you can divide your classroom into two teams, that will each be in charge of half of the classroom. The winning team will be the one with the fewest amount of snowballs on their side. If you do not want some friendly competition and just want a little bit of fun in with snowball fight learning, simply have your students do the steps below, but without worrying if the snowballs are on their side or not.
Fist, I typically scatter the snowballs across the classroom. (You will need a ton of snowballs.)
On the count of three students, I say “go” and students will race to the snowballs. They have to first open up their snowball and complete the task. If there is a letter, they will have to say the letter. If it is a sight word, they have to say the sight word.
Once they complete that step, they will make the paper into a snowball again and throw to the other side of the classroom.
