Hebrew "Basketball"

Form lines behind 5 Xs on the floor, which are arranged around the (empty) recycling bin. Set a minimum number of students per line.

Each group will receive a group of vocabulary flashcards.

Student at the front of the line will hold the card for the next student to read. If the group agrees the word is pronounced correctly, the student who read can shoot a paper ball into the bin. They retrieve and keep the ball, and hold the next card for the next students, passing off the ball when the card is pronounced correctly.

Use 5 minute timer! Goal is to read as many words correctly in that time. If a group gets through its stack, it’s time to move on to their meanings.
