For Sight Word Go Fish, you will need two copies of each sight word flash card that you want to work on.
I like to use a minimum of 17 pairs (34 cards total) for this one. You can use more.
To play, you deal 5 cards to each player. The rest of the cards go in the middle of the table. On your turn, you ask another player if they have a particular card. (“Mom, do you have to “and” card?”) If the other player has the card, he gives it to the player who asked. If not, then the other player says “Go Fish” The asking player draws a cards from the deck. If the player gets the card he asked for, from the other player or from the deck, he gets another turn.
When you get a match, you lay them down in front of yourself. The player with the most matches wins.
This game can also be used to work on counting and greater than and less than. “Good counting, if you have 9 pair and I have 8 pair, which is greater?”
