Sight-Word Go Fish Game
Preparation: Make your own deck of sight-word cards by printing the First 20 Sight-Words. Mount two sets on cardstock and cut on the dashed lines to make two index cards for each sight-word. The game works best with four players, so you may want to create multiple “decks” so that several small groups can play at once.
How to Play: Each player is dealt seven sight-word cards, and the rest of the cards are neatly stacked face down in a pile in the center of the table. As in the card game, “Go Fish,” players take turns asking each other for specific cards to make a pair. For example, Player One may ask Player Two, “Do you have the word ‘the’?” If Player Two has that card in her hand, she gives the card to Player One, who pairs it with the matching “the” card in his hand to make a pair. If Player Two does not have the card she is asked for, she says, “Go fish!”, and Player One must draw a card from the pile to add to his hand. The first player to collect the matching cards to all the cards in his or her hand wins the game!
