Team Swat! New to Me Vocabulary Game!

Are You Ready For Some Swat?!?!
Tara from Fourth Grade Frolics saw my original post "Swat! Vocabulary Game" where we all have individual fly swatters & we swat the words on index cards on our desk.
She left a comment that they play Vocabulary Slap with two at a time going to the board! I LOVE it! So when I got a chance to get two free fly swatters at Wal*Mart with coupons {89 cents each then we had 2 $1 off coupons! Click here to see the details!}I "repurposed" two of my teen's hair ribbons she never wore & turned the fly swatters into the "Team Swat!" game at the board.
We play boys against girls & I project the vocabulary words onto the white board with my Elmo ~ it's not a Smart Board, but it is still fun & amazing to use!
Team Swat! Boys vs. Girls!
Then everyone writes the vocabulary words on index cards {or scrap} and we continue to play Swat! at their seat! They love it & they need, need, need exposure to vocabulary! I call out definitions, fill-in the blank sentences, opposites, ABC order, all sorts of things that gets their mind moving while their body is moving too!

The students love both versions & I do too! Enjoy!
I would just ♥love it if you would follow me!
