SWAT! is a fun, engaging way for students to practice their vocabulary words! An entire year's worth of words included! The words included are the 3rd grade Reading Street (2011) vocabulary words. If you are interested in this product, but do not use the 3rd grade Reading Street words, please let me know. I'd be happy to upload other versions (different grade/curriculum, Fry or Dolch words, etc.)
How to Play: Students lay the flies out on the floor, face up. The first player chooses one fly and reads the word aloud. The next player finds that word, says the definition of the word, and swats the fly. Once swatted, the fly is removed from the pile and the player who swatted it gets to “keep” it in front of him/her. Continue game play until all flies are swatted and removed from the pile.
I hope your students will love playing this game as much as mine do! It's a favorite activity in my literacy centers. Those fly swatters are just so stinkin fun! ;)
