PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Many sellers have variations on the same game, calling it "Swat" or "Slap" or "Fly Swatting". This is the same classroom activity with a new name - Kazzow! (Click on the Preview to see what's included.)

Swat-type games are fun activities that engage learners. Anyone can use this activity- foreign language teachers, PreK teachers, Hebrew school teachers, Hebrew Day school teachers, and home schoolers.

With the challenges of teaching with little time (sometimes one day per week) and the need to make Hebrew fun, I created this hands-on activity that will encourage Hebrew learning, as well as the motivate students to come back for more.

Kazzow! requires very "low prep" for you. Simply print the pages and laminate. After that, you can choose whether you lay them on the floor, glue pages to a poster board, or tape to your white board. Just print and cut the caller's calls and your prep work is done.

I have two sizes of letters for you. Large letters (2 per page), for a whole class game and small letters (4 per page) for a great tabletop "slap" game.

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. Kazzow! 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.

Tons of BONUSES INCLUDED with this product:
You get a third game- a Peanut Butter and Jelly Board Game for groups of 2-4 players, using the Hebrew cards included. Players pick a card (included) and say the name of the Hebrew letter. The first player to get to the Finish is the winner. Additionally, the caller cards do triple-duty for a tabletop game of Slap, Go Fish or Memory. Also, all the activities come with extra blank pages for you if you need them. Just print and write on a customized lesson to differentiate instruction for several levels of students, or use with Hebrew parsha vocabulary, or Hebrew root words (shorashim), prefixes, and suffixes.

Last, the final bonus is the two versions of "Exit Slips". Exit Slips are used for students to write down something they learned and turn it in before leaving class. It's a powerful activity that brain research has proven to be one of the most effective teaching tools; additional parts of the brain are used when students (young or old) journal, share, or teach what they learned in the lesson, and it helps the lesson move into long-term memory.

All of the Kazzow! activities are designed to be used as on-going learning activities, as students learn more and more Hebrew letters. Of course, they work well for assessment and a fun, culminating activity, too.

The pages and cards are bright, colorful, and inviting. They are intended to be non-specific, for any age group, holiday, or season.
