Grade Level: 3-5
Brainstorm polite phrases and actions, and write each on a sheet of paper. Have students select partner, and give each team a balloon, pencil, and piece of paper. Have one person from each team come to the center and select one of the sheets created during the brainstorming. Teams then work together to volley back and forth as they say the letters from the phrase or action that they selected. Players say one letter for each successful volley. After “spell-volleying” each one, they write it on their score sheet, and select another from the center of the playing area. Continue until teams have had a chance to spell a number of the phrases.
Volleys an object upward with consecutive hits. (S1.E22.2)
