I use volleyball to not just teach the story, but I especially focus on words like inside/outside, row, left/right, times, etc. So I made a little video in my class. In reality I do this a multitude of ways, but my class helped me show you a couple – lines and circles. The video is totally artificial – normally I would spend a lot more time with each partner but I wanted to make it short without editing. The possibilities for language extension is really limited only by your imagination. My kid get hundreds of reps of left/right/inside/outside, etc over the course of the year.
Please comment below with suggestions on how to sneak even more language practice into volleyball reading!
