 • Assembly:

Color Version: Print out the mats you need (by phoneme) & laminate or place them in a sheet protector.

Black and White Version: Print out the pages you need (by phoneme).

Fly Swatters: Print out on card stock (if possible) and laminate. I printed mine on paper and mounted them on card stock (with glue) and they are sturdy!

 • How to use.

The students will swat the flies off of the food as they practice each target word. I have my students practice each word 5-10X (for 75-150 total trials per mat).The students will practice each word as they squish play dough on top of each fly (to simulate a squished fly ewww!).

Black and White Copy: The student will practice each word and color in the fly (they could also scribble black all over the fly to simulate a squished fly eww!!). You could also used daubers!!

You can also use magnetic bingo chips and a magnetic wand with these pages.

 Other Tips:

Practice the mat in therapy and send home the black and white copy as homework!

Use a real fly swatter for a more realistic experience! ha ha!
