You students will love reviewing their medial vowel sounds with this fun larger-than-life fly-swatting activity.

Pages 4-8: Colored flies
Pages 9-13: Black/White flies
Page: 14: “Bug Off” Canister Label
Pages 15-19: CVC Word Picture Cards
Page 20: Flies for use in a center
Pages 21-25: Follow-up pages

Suggestions for use:
Choose which flies you want. Print them on card stock and/or laminate for durability. Cut them out and tape them to a wall.

Print the canister label and tape to an empty canister large enough for a child to put his hand in.

Print the picture cards on card stock and/or laminate for durability. Cut them out and put them inside the canister.

Shake the “bug off” can, have each student draw a card and then take turns swatting the flies. It’s best if you have a fly swatter, but if not, simply swat them with hands instead.

I have also included a small set of flies that can be used individually in a center. Provide a smaller swatter in that case.

This activity is similar in style to my Swat the Sum Addition to 10 activity.
