"Let's Go Fishing" for New Words is a game that my students LOVE! Students will go fishing for letters to make words using the phonogram/word family on the fish. Each student gets 2 to 5 fish. I usually have 2 to 3 students work at a time in a group and choose about 3 fish each. There are 60 fish included in the activity. You need plastic magnetic consonant letters, a pail, a magnetic fishing pole (I bought my fishing pole at Lakeshore, however, you can always make a fishing pole using a dowel stick and attaching a magnetic dot at the end.) You can also use the letters included in the packet if you don't want to purchase the plastic magnetic letters. There are consonant letter cards included in the packet as well as two and three blend letter cards. You will have to add a magnetic dot on the back of each letter card. You then place all the letters/letter cards in the pail. I marked the bucket with the word "BAIT." The bait are the letters. The students will take turns fishing for a letter using the magnetic fishing pole. Once the letter is pulled out of pail the student needs to see if they can make a word with any of the fish phonogram/word family fish that they have. If so, they keep the letter and make the word. If not, the letter goes back inside the pail. The next student takes their turn. The winner is the student that makes a word using all the fish that they have. I placed my game in the literacy stations and someone always wants to work with it. If you look at the preview you will see a picture of the consonant letters, a blend card that will be included in the packet, the bucket, and the fishing pole is inside the pail, both of which you would need to purchase.
