Play Word-Ball! 

The activity requires two teams of three or more, plus a "pitcher." Each pair of teams should have or make a large drawing of a baseball diamond, twenty 3" X 5" cards with a Basic Word on each, and game markers. Teams take turns "at bat." The pitcher reads a word. If the batter spells it correctly, he or she moves the marker one base, and a new batter is up. Each misspelled word is an out. After three outs the members of the other team become batters. The first team to score three runs wins.
