This hands-on literacy center showcases the first 100 sight words for primary students to practice. Students can work independently or collaboratively on this center. They will love collecting their fish by reading the words accurately!
To assemble this center, print out cards (cardstock works best!) and laminate to make more durable. Then, attach a small piece of magnet tape or Velcro to the tip of each fish’s nose (I suggest adhering the magnet to the backside of the fish). Once you have stuck either your magnets or Velcro pieces to the fish, you’ll need to create a “fishing rod.” A classroom pointer, wire hanger, fly swatter, or even a ruler will work just fine for this. Make as many fishing rods as you’d like; the more the merrier! On one end of the rod, attach another piece of Velcro or opposing magnet.
Once you are all set up, it’s time to fish! Model how to linger your fishing rod over the pile of fish. Once a fish attaches, reel it in and practice reading the sight word. Keep your fish if you read the word correctly or throw ‘em back in for a second try! Play until all the fish are out of the sea. HAPPY FISHING!
