  1. Swat a Word!
More Resources

Materials:

  • chart paper (laminated would be best) or overhead with screen
  • words listed on chart or overhead
  • flyswatters

Goals:

  • To increase sight word knowledge, recognize vocabulary words or identify letters.
  • To improve fluency of sight words

Resource Instructions

1.  The chart is posted with selected sight words.  

2. Teacher reviews the words with the students.

3.  Teacher models with one student reading a word and the student finding it on the chart and "swatting" it with the fly swatter. 

4.  After students have had guided practice with the teacher, work in groups of 2-3 to play the game.

Extensions:

1.  This can be used for letter identification, sight words, or vocabulary practice.

2. Vocabulary practice would include the reading of the meaning of a word and students swatting the picture or word that carries that meaning. 

3.  This can be a "competitive" game with 2 students.  Who can swat the word first?  I don't keep track, though!

Assessment:

1.  Observational assessment as students play.

2.  Dolch sight word assessment every 3-6 weeks.

3. Other sight word assessment of teacher's personal choice.

4. DIBELS Oral Reading Fluency assessment

5. For letter knowledge: DIBELS Letter Naming Fluency

6. For vocabulary:  DIBELS word knowledge assessment and student use of words presented.
