Swat that Sight Word

April 26, 2012

Need another fun way to practice sight words?!
I have one for you!
"Swat that Sight Word"

All you need is a fly swatter, plastic bugs-- although, not necessary, and sight word cards.

I laid out several sight words around our play/school room and put a bug on each one (you don't need the bugs, though).
Next I called out the sight words and T had to find it and "Swat the Word."  Simple and fun!  A great way to burn off some energy and learn at the same time!
We took turns being the swatter, so he also called out the words to me.

If you need more ideas, see a list of my other ideas here!

Cute! My kids love fly swatters! We just did some painting with them - maybe I'll have to try this with letters!

Yes, he loved it so much he broke the fly swatter! : )

Oh this would be a perfect activity to do during your insect themed week! Not sure how old your boys are, but it would work with your plain ol' ABC's and numbers, too!

Thank you for stopping by and commenting! I hope your son enjoys it as much as mine did : )

Yes! I saw that post and thought it was such a creative and fun idea-- I'd love to try that, but we'll need a new fly-swatter first! Ours broke!

Hi! I'm dropping in from Teach Me Tuesdays:

How fun! I'm going to remember this activity when my little ones begin sight words.

This is wonderful! My kids always want to swat the flies--giving them a clean swatter and going after sight words sounds so very fun and sanitary!! ;) I'm sharing this on my PreschoolPowolPackets Facebook page...thanks for linking up at Teach Me Tuesday!
