I saw these fly swatters on someone's blog. They were on sale 3 in a bag for a $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! :)
On Monday I had the students write their 8 vocabulary words on separate index cards, spread them around the top of the desk & let the games begin! They stood up & I called out each definition and they "swatted" each word. I also made up fill-in-the-blank sentences, opposites & "what comes first alphabetically?" etc. They loved it & it allowed them to get their wiggles out!
Please leave me a comment if it was your blog listing the sale, I want to give you credit because I ♥love, ♥love, ♥love this idea! Thanks!
