I was strolling the aisles of the Dollar Tree the other week and came across this super adorable frog fly swatter! That was just enough motivation to pull out the fly swatting activities! Of course, any old fly swatter will do, but geez…. he’s just so cute!
Many of my kindergarten friends are just learning sight words and my first grade friends always need a little more practice. The fly swatting activity has been a favorite. There’s a little assembly involved, but it is so worth it! All you’ll need to do is print the flies, laminate and cut. Then place a bit of velcro on each fly and then a strip of velcro on the back of the fly swatter. Students “SWAT” the flies and read the words on the flies stuck on the swatter.
This is a super simple activity, but the students LOVE it. It’s such a fun way to learn and practice sight words. As always, you can differentiate the activity by choosing which and how many flies to use.
The fly swatting activity for letters and sounds was designed just for my preschool and kindergarten friends. You can use all the upper- and lowercase flies or just use one or the other. Be sure to have your students not only name the letter, but provide the letter sound as well.
There are over 150 CVC words contained in the fly swatting CVC words activity. This activity is great for our students who are just learning to put sounds together to form words.
