Pg. 16-23 Going Fishing! – a game to practice your High-Frequency words – attach metal paperclips to the fish, sock, shoe, and tire – to make a fishing pole – get a stick, attach yarn and hot glue a magnet to the end of the string – put the fish in the pond face down – students take turns using the pole to catch a fish – read the word on the fish after you catch it – if you catch a tire, sock, or shoe you lose a turn (you can have them return one of their fish to the pond as well if you want the game to last longer) – can be laminated
