Sight Word Fishing

Today, we played sight word fishing. I cut fish shapes out of orange cardstock. Then, I wrote the words I, a, me, we, by, is, it, the, and, at on the fish. I attached a magnet to each fish. Then, Arin used her fishing pole (from her puzzle similiar to this). I would tell her to find a word, such as "Find the word we." and she would try to fish for this word. Today was the first time that she has been introduced to these words, so she needed a little help with some, but she thought it was fun to fish for the words.
