Swat The Old Black Fly Game

     What happens when a kindergarten teacher walks into Dollar Tree and sees a giant fly swatter? She decides that The Old Black Fly by Jim Aylesworth needs to be read and a game needs to be made. So, because we are working on number words and revisiting color words, I made the Swat the Old Black Fly game. We have had a ball playing the game as a team game (I bought two flyswatters)
  So, run to Dollar Tree and pick up a giant fly swatter (or use the regular size) and print out, laminate and cut out the old black flies and play away!!
