Sight Words in Physical Education

Here is a fun warm up game to integrate reading.  We call the game helper tag.  Not my idea, I learned this at a conference from a great teacher in Colorado.  To start the game we have two or three taggers, two or three “helpers”.  When students get tagged they freeze or do jumping jacks or whatever you choose.  Along come the “helpers” who have sight word cards.  They show the card to the frozen student.  The student reads the card, they are back in the game.  If they don’t know the word, or get it wrong the helper helpsIntegration of literacy in physical education them ” Billy this word says AND, now you read it” Frozen Billy reads AND. Then they are back in the game.  We also play a version that after you get “helped” (shown a sight word card) you then take the card and are now the new helper.
