Fishing Extravaganza is a fun-filled way to engage young readers in word reading. Simply print out the fish cutouts on any color copy paper, laminate them, and cut them out. Attach small adhesive magnets (strip or round magnet) on the back of each fish near the head. Using a ruler as a fishing pole, attach a string and a magnet to the end of the ruler (string first, then magnet/paper clip at the end of the string). Decorate a shoe box as an ocean and place the magnetic fish inside. Lower your fishing pole into the box and catch away! Students much read each word on the fish as they catch them. If they cannot read the word, then the fish was a bad catch and they must throw the fish back in. Happy Learning.
