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.
