Product Description
Journeys Kindergarten Magnetic Fishing - Shark Attack!

★ Literacy Center Activities

★ 26 page download –Journeys Kindergarten Sight Words on colorful fish (24 different styles of fish.)

★ 24 blank fish to write class words or students’ names.

★ 24 shark cards-Use as many as you choose to make the game more exciting!

★ In addition to the 40 Journeys sight words, I have also included 8 additional words: name, yes, can, am, up, it, in, not.

★ Print out just the words your students need.

★ Students “fish for words”, keeping those they can read (and record if you choose to use the optional recording sheets).

★ If a student catches a fish with a shark on the reverse side, a number beside the shark tells how many fish must be thrown back….

★ There are reverse images of all of the fish so that you can print out back to back OR glue the front and back together. That way students won’t be able to see which word is on the fish or if there is a shark hiding on the reverse side because you can place them text side and shark side down.

★ You can cut the Journeys sight word fish up as cards or cut out the fish on their borders.

★ I have included 2 pages of fish with empty text boxes in which you can write any class words or perhaps your students’ names.

Designed to be printed out back to back.
• Print out pages 1&2 (directions and seller’s description).
• Next print out page 3 (word fish).
• Now, place page 3 in the printer tray face up and facing you.
• Print out page 4, and the other side of the fish will print perfectly.
• Next, print page 5 (word fish).
• Then, place page 5 in the printer tray face up, facing you.
• Print page 6 (fish backings) and the other side of those fish will print perfectly, etc.
• Continue in this manner until you have printed the fish and sharks you need.
• Finally you can either cut them out or simply slice them on the paper cutter to make small square cards.
• Place a paper clip on the mouth of each fish. (I have placed the words towards the tail of each fish to allow room for the paper clip without obscuring the sight word.)
• Secure a magnet onto a piece of string or yarn, and attach to a straw or ruler.
• For a more realistic appearance, the last page has 4 fishing rods to cut out and fold down the middle the long way and place over the straw or ruler.
• Students hover the “fishing rod” over the shiny water (a cardboard copy paper lid covered with aluminum foil works fine.) and catch a fish as it adheres to the magnet.
• If a student catches a fish with a shark on the reverse side, there is a number 1, 2 or 3 to tell how many fish they must throw back….
• If the student reads the word and/or uses it in a sentence, s/he keeps that fish.
• I have included 2 optional recording sheets if you’d like students to write the words they catch. 2 are in color to laminate and use erasable markers. 2 are in black and white to make copies for students to record in pencil.
• To make things a bit more realistic, I have provided 8 different sea plant borders to glue onto the sides of the lid, inside and out.
• There are also 2 optional award certificates for “Sight Word Fishing Champion”. One is in color, and one is in black and white.
• This activity can grow with your students at various levels of sight word development.
