This activity is a variation of the American card game Go Fish and the English card game Happy Families.
Go Fish for Happy Families is played just like the traditional "Go Fish" game. In this version, students will match rhyming words to form families. Set 1 contains all short vowel words.
It can be used for a literacy center or it was always a popular choice when I included it in my Friday afternoon hour of fun educational games and activities (a reward for a week of hard work.)
The cards may also be used for a ‘Memory’ or ‘Concentration’ type game. For this activity you may want to only use two words from each family for a total of twenty cards.
The game is self-checking because each word card has a unique fish on it that corresponds with the other words in the family.
This product is also available in a bundle that includes all 3 sets of the game at a discounted price of $1.80. (set 1 is free, set 2 and 3 sell for $1.00 each)
