Product Description

This is a fun, hands-on activity that will encourage faster Hebrew learning and motivate students to come back for more because it uses principles of brain-based teaching which is backed by research.

Many sellers call it "Swat" or "Slap" or "Fly Swatting". Mine has a new name - Kazzow! (See the PREVIEW to see sample pages. Not all pages are included in the preview.)

Swat-type games are fun activities that engage learners, and neuroscientists agree that this movement activity facilitates faster, easier learning. Anyone can use this activity, such as foreign language teachers, PreK teachers, Hebrew school teachers, Hebrew Day school teachers, and home schoolers.

Advantages

  • It's "low prep" for you. Simply print the pages and laminate. After that, you can use them on the floor, a poster board, or your white board. There's almost nothing to cut out, unless you want to.

  • Two sizes for you to choose. Large letters (2 per page), for a whole class game and small letters (4 per page) for a great tabletop "slap" game or small spaces.

  • Uses gross motor skills and the bodily/kinesthetic modality, which neuroscience (brain research) has proven are extremely effective at moving lessons into long-term memory and keeping learners focused on the task.

  • Designed to be used as a classroom practice activity, as well as an assessment and culminating activity.

  • Bright, colorful pages are inviting.

  • Pages are non-specific, for any age group and can be used throughout the entire year.

How To Play

When the caller/teacher calls out a Hebrew letter, one student uses a wooden spoon or fly swatter to hit/swat the letter. Add extra excitement by having teams compete against each other, or compete against another class.

You could also number the pages, and have students draw a number from a container. Students would read the page or pages with those numbers. Because "Kazzow!" involves movement, students will automatically be more engaged and more motivated than when sitting at a desk, reading Hebrew from a book or worksheet.

Bonuses Included

  • The caller cards do triple-duty for a tabletop game of Slap, Go Fish or Memory.
