I’m always on the lookout for engaging, hands on ways to learn sight words. One of the favourite activities in my Prep classroom was always sight word fishing!
All I did was type up our sight words onto my Editable Fish Templates, laminated them and cut them out. You can add a paperclip to the end or just a few staples. Next I found some magnetic fishing rods (Kmart have a great set in their wooden toy department) and then I set up this fun sensory tub! Add some blue rice, pebbles, coral and shells and then you have the perfect little tub for sight word work!
You can grab a copy of my editable fish file on Teacher’s Pay Teachers by clicking here or any of the images in this post. I hope your students love this little game as much as my own!
