Swat it!

http://teach123-school.blogspot.com/

What do you do with bugs?  Swat them, right?  Here's a fun activity to use with my "Buggy for Reading" packets.  You can also use this with other lessons, too.

When you meet with your reading group, give each student a copy of this:

This is from my primer packet.

First, give your students time to read these sentences silently by themselves.  Then you  let each student read a sentence or have partners read a sentence together.  

Ahead of time, write the sentences on sentence strips.  Choose two volunteers to play "swat it".  You give the volunteers a swatter (fly swatter with a square cut out of the middle).  You give them a clue such as "I'm looking for a word that rhymes with fan."  The first volunteer who covers the word with their swatter wins a bug.  Bugs are my incentive program.  You can get a free copy here:  B.U.G.S.  Sometimes you will give them clues that may work for more than one word such as "I'm looking for a word with a long vowel." 

There is also a writing extension for this lesson that can be given as homework, used as a center or given as a handwriting lesson.
