Addition Facts Magnetic Fishing - Shark Attack! Great for Summer School or End of the Year Math!

Newly revised with new fish clipart.

★ Includes 4 optional recording sheets, 2 optional addition award certificates, ocean scenery and fishing rods for a more realistic touch...

100 Addition Facts - 34 page download – on 100 colorful fish (24 different styles of fish.)

★ 8 blank fish to write additional facts or replace any lost cards. 24 shark cards - Use as many as you choose to make the game more exciting!

★ Students “fish for facts”, hovering a fishing rod made from a ruler or straw with the fishing rod images folded and taped onto them. Students keep those fish whose facts they can solve (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 simple print out the entire file, and then glue the fronts and backs together. You can cut them up as cards or cut out the fish on their borders. 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 fact side down and shark side down. Fish can be placed in the lid of a copy paper box, lined with foil to make the water shiny. There are also 8 strips of ocean plants and scenery to tape onto the side of the box for a more realistic touch.

Designed to be printed out back to back.
• Print out pages 1&2 (directions and seller’s description).
• Next print out page 3 (fact 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 (fact 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 all of the fish and sharks and their backings.
• Print out the remainder of the pages: 4 recording sheets, 2 award certificates, scenery & fishing rods.
• Finally you can either cut out the fish 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, there is a page with 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 2, 3 or 4 to tell how many fish they must throw back….
• I have included 2 optional recording sheets if you’d like students to write the words 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 “Addition Champion”.
