Fern Smith's Vocabulary Swat Game

These fly swatters were on sale 3 in a bag for $1 at the Dollar General. I loved them so much I asked the hubby to jump in the truck and come on a quick 'field trip' with me! I bought 7 bags for $7, then I bought the ribbon at Wal*Mart for under 6 bucks. The basket was old and kicking around in our garage, so we cleaned that up and added the left over ribbon ~ ta-da!
I'm feeling kind of crafty now! :)
To play SWAT, have the students write their vocabulary words on separate index cards, spread them around the top of the desk & let the games begin! They stand up & I called out each definition and then they "swat" each word on their desk. Other ways to play include: 
*  Making up fill-in-the-blank sentences
*  Calling out opposites 
*  Questions like "What comes first alphabetically?" 
My students love it & it allows them to get their wiggles out!!
