Fishing learning aid

Since we were on a ‘fishing’ theme with Alicia – scooping fish and the visit to the Underwater World at Sentosa – I made this fishing learning aid for her. It’s a versatile learning aid and I’ve been wanting to do it up for a long time and finally got down to doing it – and finishing it (those are two very different things!).

It’s a versatile learning aid because what’s on the fish can be easily changed to suit whatever you want to teach (while the fish remain, well, unchanged).

Here she’s fishing for uppercase letters in the ‘pond’ (which really is a big piece of felt I bought to make a felt board for her – it’s standing in temporarily as a make-shift pond):

I’ve prepared alphabets (both upper and lower case), numbers 1-20 and some dolch list sight words (which will come in useful in future). Currently we’re only playing with the alphabets and numbers.

I can get her to fish for specific alphabets to spell a certain word or just get her to fish for fun – I guess magnets have a certain hold on children 🙂 Her fav activity though is to ‘clap’ the fish I caught and make it drop… lol.

Taking out another set of alphabets:

We really have so much fun with this! 😛
