Product Description
Sight words are so important for students to master, but plain flashcards can get boring. These "I Spy a Fly" sight word cards are a great way to practice sight words throughout the year in several engaging and interactive ways!

All you need are these cards and a few dollar store fly swatters! You can also use pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, or plain old hands if you don’t have fly swatters! These cards can be used in so many ways, a few of which I’ve listed below. I hope your students enjoy these cards as much as mine have!
Note: There are black and white versions of all cards included as well as blank fly cards for you to write your own words on! These are great for spelling and vocabulary words of the week.

•I Spy a Fly!: Put a few cards around the room each week. Choose a student and yell out “I spy a fly!” The student has to go around the room swatting the flies and saying the sight words as they get them! Swap out the words each week for constant review.

•Swat Race: Use sticky tack or tape to attach 9-12 cards to the board. Call two students up at a time and say one of the words. See who can swat the word the fastest! You can divide the class into teams and keep score if you’d like.

•Mini Swat Race: This is very similar to the option above but for a small group setting. Place all (or some) of the cards on a table during center time or small groups. Have one student call out a word while the other students scramble to swat it first. If they swat it first they get to keep the card. When all the cards are collected the person with the most cards wins that round and they get to start over.

•Fly Matching: Print out two sets of cards and arrange them all on a table face down. Students must take turns picking two cards hoping to find a match. As they pick each card they must say the sight word aloud. The person with the most pairs at the end of the game wins that round.

•Swat the Door: Hang a few cards on the outside or inside of the door. As students enter or exit the room have them choose a word to say aloud and swat as they walk by. This also helps cut down on chatter in the line as they focus on which word they’ll swat that day! Change the words out each week for a great review of different sight words.

Your students are sure to master their 1st grade sight words in no time with this fun and educational resource. Watch them swat their way to success!
