Thursday Throwdown: Answer Buzzers

 I'm so excited Thursday Throwdown is back!! I've had this post sitting in drafts since April! I'm glad you finally get to read it :)
Just before April vacation, I pulled these out to make our Figurative Language Football game (found on SMART Exchange) a little more fun.
I bought these from Calloway House a few years ago, but they can be found almost anywhere.

The buzzers all make different sounds, and they look so pretty!
They do require a little planning-a tiny screwdriver and 2 AAA batteries each (I read it wrong and brought AA's-but thanks to an aide who lived nearby-she brought me AAA's during lunch!!)

The kids LOVED them!

I had a small period of buzzing time-to get it out of their systems! :)

Then we each got a whiteboard, a marker, a buzzer and our teams and went to work!

Of course, some yardage was taken away in the game for excessive buzzing~some of us got a little too excited!

Definitely a fun way to spice up a game-and highly recommended!

Smiles and Sunshine,
Kaitlyn

  2. I just bought a set of these (on Amazon) over the summer. My nieces and nephews had fun testing them out for me. I am planning to use them in class soon! Thank you!
