My students LOVE this active, inexpensive spelling-review game!
To play, divide the class into 2 teams and provide a fly swatter to each group. Invite a fly-swatter-wielding student from each team to the board (where this PowerPoint presentation is projected).
Both students must turn their backs to the board, while you advance to the next slide and read their spelling word. On the count of 3, both must whirl around and SWAT the correctly-spelled word as quickly as possible.
The student who does this first wins that round and earns points for his team. The next 2 contestants then come to the board, and the game continues.
