Hello again! Hope your weekend has gotten off to a great start! Today I am bringing to you another classroom resource that I created. A common problem in emergent readers is the reversal of different letters. This can sometimes be corrected through intervention. However, I think that the instruction should be fun and engaging for the student to get the most out of the lesson. With that in mind, I created a twist off the original “Go Fish!” game.
To play this game, you place the cards face down on a table. The student then draws one card, and, if they can say the word correctly, they get to keep the card. The goal is to obtain as many cards as possible before the game is over. This works well for a one-on-one session, but it can also be adapted for partner work, where each student checks the other’s pronunciation. I developed this game to focus on the reversals of the letters b, d, p, and g. I plan to use this game in conjunction with “The Three Little Pigs” story.
I am a firm believer that if I’m not having fun while teaching, the students aren’t having fun. Learning should be fun, but also functional. This game is both, so feel free to download it by clicking here: Go Fish Letter Reversal Game and use it however you wish.
I have many fun things in store, so stay tuned for more creations!
