Go Fish First! This is an engaging version of Go Fish! that uses Sight Words rather than numbers rather than numbers. The decks of cards are Dolch lists.

Copy cards on cardstock. (Avery 5271 Business Card template also works and makes cutting easier!)

Laminate for durability.

Each player gets five cards.

If you are dealt four of a kind, or get four of a kind during game play, those cards are removed from your hand, and you get a point.

Moving clockwise, players take turns asking a specific player for a given word card: “Do you have any “the”s?

The person with the most packs of four at the end of the game wins.

*Option: If you want to put backs on the cards – the last page can be used to copy the backside of each set.

*Note: Mix and match the cards any way you wish. Some of the sets are large – break them up but be mindful of needing to keep “packs” of four together.

The font is KG Behind These Hazel Eyes. I have paid for a license; however, since you are using this resource for your class and are printing the Word version – you may download the font for free. I chose this particular font because the “a”s are: a and easier for students to read.
