Looking for an activity you can use to help your children learn the letters of the alphabet?
I have a freebie for you today that can help you out. It’s a Fishing for Letters activity that you just print and make. If you have any fishing fanatics in your home (We have a lot here in Minnesota!), they’ll love it because it’s all about their favorite sporting event…fishing.
You simply print out the free printable below, cut out the fish, laminate for durability, and put a paper clip on each fish. (Fish like paper clips, don’t they?) Then, make a fishing rod out of a stick or dowel, some string, and a magnet, and let your fisherman (or woman) go fishing for the letters! Easy peasy!
You can get some letter recognition practice in by either asking your child to identify the letters he catches or by calling out a letter and having him catch that particular fish.
Want to turn it into phonics practice? Have your child make the letter sound when he catches a fish or say a letter sound and have him catch the right fish.
There are other possibilities too. If your child is learning a foreign language, these fish can be used to practice the letters in that language. I included a blank fish for you to write any letters that don’t appear in the English language.
