Today I was at Dollar Tree and I found these HUGE FLY SWATTERS! I couldn't pass them up! My students will LOVE using these to play the "fly swatter game".
The "fly swatter game" works great as a review for any topic. Simply put answers to questions up on the board. They can be words (sight words maybe), math problems, or numbers that are answers to math problems, even pictures for example pictures of coins or of things that have certain letter sounds. Have two single file lines facing the board (each line is a team). The first person in each line gets a fly swatter. The teacher asks a question and whichever student can find the answer and swat it first gets a point for their team! I have often used PowerPoint to create sides to put up to play the game with. It is much easier than writing a bunch of things on the board.
I hope your Dollar Tree has huge fly swatters too!
From the time I was a kid I always wanted to teach. My dream has come true! This is my second year teaching second grade. I am the lucky teacher of 28 second graders! I couldn't have a better profession. When I am not teaching I love read, travel, cook and bake, craft, and spend time with my amazing family and friends!
