Adapted for elementary school.  Use ping pong balls to teach active learners vocabulary/synonyms/antonyms/homophones words. Throw a ball to a student & have them use it in a complete sentence or give a homophone/synonym/antonym for the word. They can then throw it back when used correctly.

Already purchased the ping-pong balls and ready to implement.Use ping pong balls to teach your active learner sight words. "Throw 'for' to me. Throw 'so' to me." Could also create a box with writing prompts on each ball.

Grammar Journals ... interesting way to teach/integrate grammar lessons. Left side is the grammar lesson with rules; right side is their attempts at using it in their own way with a writing prompt. Then, you assess them during the week as a "bellringer"or "do now" assignment.
