Are you looking for a simple game that you can use for any small group? Well, look no further. This open-ended game is ideal for small groups. You can incorporate a myriad of skills by simply paper-clipping a picture card to the fish. Once the student catches a fish, he/she will say the target word/use the correct pronoun/give an attribute/name the color/etc. Or, to make it even simpler, you can have the student do their work task, and then catch a fish for reinforcement, without you paper-clipping a card to the back. Your students will have a blast, while you are easily gathering data.
This product is PERFECT for those new to the speech therapy profession, who need a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to build up their games and activities library. It’s also great for those who, like me, need an updated version of this beloved fishing game.
Each fish measures 5 ½” x 4 ¾”. Included in this product are 2 of each of the following colors: black-and-white fish (which prints out as “white” fish when printed on white cardstock), black, light blue, brown, grey, green, orange, pink, purple, blue, red, and yellow.
To assemble, simply print, cut out, and laminate each fish. (This product is printer-friendly, in that you can print the black-and-white fish onto colored cardstock, if desired.) Then, place a metal paperclip (which magnets are attracted to) onto each fish. You can purchase an inexpensive fishing rod from most toy stores, or even Dollar Tree stores. Or, you can make your own rod by simply placing a string on a stick, and attaching a magnet to the end.
