BATTLESHIP SPELLING PRACTICE~ A 2-player game where each student inserts the word list in to spaces going across. Players take turns guessing coordinates. If they miss, they mark it on their board. If they hit a letter, they keep guessing until they miss. If they sink a word, the player marks it off of his list. The goal of the game is to sink all of your opponent's words. Fun and great practice!
