SPLAT! SPLAT! SPLAT!
It's that time of year again. The flies will be making their way to your neighborhood to bug the heck out of you very soon. If you are in need of a new flyswatter, check these out. I found them at Walmart and picked up a couple for a sight word recognition game my students like to play.
Here's how I use them in my classroom. I have sight words posted on a pocket chart. I divide the class into two teams. One student from each team stands in front of the pocket chart with a flyswatter. I call out a sight word. The first student to swat the word earns a point for his/her team. I have a small class, so kids gets several turns in a short time. There are lots of variations of this game. If you use flyswatters in your room, I would love to hear how you use them.
