Lesson Plan Source Launches New Alphabet Fishing Game For Homeschooling
Lesson Plan Source (LPS), a website with a broad variety of online learning resources is reaching out to the community to announce that their new resource, an alphabet fishing game for homeschooling, is now available. The company offers a host of other educational resources on this platform, many of which are similarly available for free.
On this occasion, the company touches upon one of the most basic topics of teaching (language), approaching the lesson with a game that aims to make the session enjoyable, didactic and fruitful all in equal measures. This new plan is called Alphabet Fishing Game, and it is recommended for students of Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and First grade. By the end of the lesson, students should be able to recognize and match upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
“When it comes to teaching young children, the secret lies in turning your lessons into fun and interactive activities that your students can enjoy," states a representative of Lesson Plan Source. "The alphabet fishing game that is included within our plan achieves just that. It is a fun way for children to practice identifying and matching the letters of the alphabet. It should be simple enough for even younger students to understand, have fun with it and learn at the same time. This makes it a classroom activity that can even transform into a recurring game that reinforces learning.”
The alphabet fishing game is simple to set up, requiring no more than half an hour of preparation the first time around—and only a few minutes for future activities. To be set up for the first time, the teachers will need to print the alphabet fishing cards on heavy paper and cut out and laminate cards, then attach a small paperclip to each letter card. Water can be simulated by cutting blue plastic cloth in a circle shape and placing it onto a table to make it look like a small pond.
The game itself can be played by several students at a time. Each will take a turn fishing and matching the cards picked up with those laid on the table, accumulating a point for each successful match and passing their turn on to the next student. Once all cards have been captured, the player with the most matches wins.
The company says, "Each game should not take more than half an hour, though possible modifications can be made to speed things up, make it easier or harder. It all depends on your student's familiarity with the topic, though we have noticed that teachers often find themselves looking for ways to make the game more challenging. Some of the most common options include adding a memory component by not showing the image, making vowels bonus cards that award a player an extra turn or to have players name a word that begins or ends with each letter they pick."
