This vocabulary game is a favorite of my students! Each week I post our vocabulary words on the editable strips included in this file on my pocket chart. I call two students up at time, hand them a (clean) flyswatter, and I give either a definition, an antonym, a synonym, or a sentence clue about the word. I yell, “Swat!” and the student who swats the correct vocabulary word first is the winner. (They like to swat the fly on the correct card!) The other student has to use the word correctly in a sentence. This game is fun and helps students practice and use their vocabulary words. You can also give the rest of the class a whiteboard to write the correct word and use it in a sentence to involve
everyone in the fun and learning!
