This version of Go Fish! is designed to give kindergarten students extra practice identifying number cards, specifically numbers in the “teens.” Included are four different versions of the cards. Choose the font you like best, or print one of each! Use a total of 44 cards for the game.
Go Fish! can be played with 2-6 children.
Shuffle the cards. Deal five cards face down to each player. Place the remaining cards in a stack, face down, in the middle of the playing space.
The player to the left of the dealer begins by asking one other player for a specific card, (and there must be one of that card in his/her hand already) such as, “Do you have a 7?” If the player has the card, he/she must give the card to the first player. The first player then gets another turn. If the player does not have the card, he or she say, “Go Fish!” and the first player draws a card from the stack.
Two ways to win: Players can collect pairs, and set them down as the get two of the same card. Or, play can continue until players have four of a kind. Play continues until a player is out of cards or until the stack is gone. The player with the most pairs/sets is the winner.
