Swat is a hands-on learning experience for building speed and confidence with identifying sight words.
The adult says a word, and the child has to spot the word and swat it with a fly swat. Children find the physicality of the activity exciting and is a great way to provide your little learners with the repetition they need to achieve mastery while keeping them engaged.
Set up the game by placing the fly cards out on a table or the floor, well-spaced out and word side up. The adult calls out one word at a time. The child must find the word among the fly cards and then “swat” the word with their fly swatter while repeating the word.
For a child that is just starting with sight words, begin with five fly cards. As the child progresses you can add more words.
I recommend laminating to reuse over and over!
