I LOVE playing games with my students and LOVE when they play games with each other. GO FISH Addition is a great way to review addition facts and have fun. I have included facts 1+1 through 9+9.
I purposely created the cards to have the facts on one card and the sum in word form on the matching card. I think it makes the game a bit more challenging.
In my classroom when we play GO FISH, I have them say “I have four, do you (so and so) have a fact that matches? There are several possibilities. They are constantly thinking while playing. I always play with a few students first and model what I want them to say and then I have them teach their classmates. I add the cards in as needed. I may start with 2’s and 3’s adding in 4’s later. I have also been known to use the cards as a matching/memory game. Two options!!
I have GO FISH for spelling available as well. I find games to be a great way to have fun while learning.
Thank you and let me know if you have any questions.
