Product Description
Students “fish for letter/sounds”, keeping those they can name (or tell the sound of and/or think of a word that begins with that sound). 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….

★ 36 colorful fish and 12 shark cards! Use as many shark cards as you choose to make the game more exciting. If a shark card is caught, the player puts back 2, 3 or 4 of his or her fish as designated on that particular shark card.

★ Use as a letter recognition game or as a phonics game.

★ All partner letters are included plus both versions of a, g, t, y and q, plain and fancy! Also included are the consonant digraphs ch, th, sh, wh if you use it as a phonics game.

★ Cover the lid of a file folder box or copy paper box top with tin foil. Use the pages of scenery provided to decorate the sides of the lid inside and out. Just fold each sheet down the middle and place over the ides of the box. Place the fish in the lid.

• 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.
• I have included an optional recording sheet if you’d like students to write the letters/sounds they catch.
• 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 “Letter Champion” and “Phonics Champion”.
• This activity can grow with your students as they progress from simple letter recognition to sounds.

Colorful fish! Scenery provided as well.

Place a paper clip on the mouth of each fish.

Secure a magnet onto a piece of string or yarn, and attach to a straw or ruler.

Students hover the fishing rod over the shiny water (a cardboard copy paper lid works fine.) and catch a fish as it adheres to the magnet. If the student can name the letter and/or sound and/or something that begins with the sound, s/he keeps the fish.

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. The activity as shown contains both versions of a, g, t and q, plain and fancy.

★ There are reverse images of all of the fish so that you can print out back to back OR simply print out the entire file, and glue the fronts and backs together. That way students won’t be able to see which letter/sound 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 them up as cards or cut out the fish on their borders. I have included 1 fish with an empty text box in case any fish get lost!

Designed to be printed out back to back.
• Print out pages 1&2 (directions and seller’s description).
• Next print out page 3 (letter/sound 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 (letter/sound 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. Sharks have fish on their reverse sides as well, so students won’t be able to tell which are the sharks.
• Then print out the remainder of the file:
o 4 optional recording sheets
o 2 optional Award Certificates
o a page of fishing rods
o ocean scenery
• Finally you can either cut out the fish or simply slice them on the paper cutter to make small square cards.
