ABC FlySwatter

We like to play this game every once in awhile and the children just LOVE it.
Basically the kids SWAT the letter the teacher calls out. The swatter on the bottom is the person who gets to keep that letter. This works best as a small group with kids around the same developmental abilities so one child isn't winning all of the cards. To help with the kids not trying to be first, I say, "Hold your swatters up" and they hold them straight up in the air so they are all in the same position.
Just so you know, these swatters are UNUSED!!
This game also works with any other concept you might be learning about.....shapes, colors, addition, subraction, numbers, patterns, etc. Just switch it around with the appropriate cards or answers the children need to SWAT!!
