Are you using Guided Math station rotation/centers in your Kindergarten or First Grade classroom? Then, this is the perfect component to a game center!
A simple, yet fun math twist on the classic game of Go Fish! Students start with 3 cards each. They ask a specific partner, "Joey, do you have a 4?". That person responds with "yes or go fish". If the first person got a match, he/she goes again. If he/she didn't get a match, the next person takes a turn. Play until cards are gone and then just PLAY AGAIN! Cards go to 10.
Hold your students ACCOUNTABLE with a recording sheet. During Guided Math, you are too busy teaching a small-group lesson to be interrupted with students in the game center. Problem solved with this easy, yet fun game center that includes a recording sheet for student accountability. Students record matches!
Teach this game ONCE and you have set up a solid foundation for other Go Fish games in your classroom.
Build upon this simple game to start guided math games in your classroom TODAY!
