Fishing for Words

A fun way to do vocabulary words is to go fishing for them. I have used it with someone as young as 18 months. I learned this from the Early Intervention Speech Therapist and I have been using it for years now. This is a great way to get fine motor skills in and learn you sight words or other words you are working on.

What you need:

Have them put the paper clips on the cards. This is a great fine motor skill. It also gives them a chance to have looked at the cards.

When they are done turn the cards face down and mix them up.

They fish for the card, turn it over and say the word on the card. You can change this up by having them say a sentence with the word.

My girls will ask for this. We did it once but they wanted to keep going so I let them. They will do this for 30 minutes straight. It is a great way to review something and have it be fun!

I also use a variation where I put a random color on the back of each card. They have to announce the color they are picking and then get it.
