Using a fly swatter to swat flies (with letters, words or math facts) during small group intervention or in literacy centers has been an all time favorite spring activity in our schools for years. I only wish I knew who came up with this idea years ago- it’s brilliant! To assemble the activity all you need to do is place a strip of velcro on a fly swatter, print and cut out the flies, and then place a small velcro dot on each fly. Students take turns swatting flies and reading the word on the flies they catch. Very simple, but guaranteed to keep them practicing those words for a long time.
The Fly Swatting Sight Word activity for the Dolch Sight Words is available in my online Teachers Pay Teachers store.
