Fishing for Communication

As I have learned from my friend at Codding Hollow Associates, the concept of Go Fish can be used to learn and review a variety of topics everything from farm animals, to vehicles, to dinosaurs and academic concepts such as colors, numbers, letters, and shapes. 

And now in true Considerate Classroom fashion, you can use Go Fish to practice communication skills with students who are non-verbal or have limited language using aided language boards specific to various Go Fish Games!

The various Go Fish Games include dinosaurs, zoo animals, farm animals, people, places, vehicles, letters, colors, numbers, and shapes.  It is simple!  Just print, cut out and laminate the Go Fish cards: 
And print and put the aided language boards into page protectors.
Or even better take a little advice from Mary Asper, and print pages 27 through 33 of the communication set on Avery 25395 Name Tag Badge Paper.  
Just stick the name tag badges on cheap playing cards from the Dollar Tree and you have a durable set of Go Fishing cards specific to your aided language boards!
If that is not enough, check it out, the cards and aided language boards can double as a memory game!
Or even an independent sorting activity! 
My sorting labels can be printed from the communication set. they include two levels.  One in which the child reads, and the other in which the child looks at the pictures to determine which cards go where.
Go to my teachers pay teachers store to get all 10 versions of Go Fish and the aided language boards to go along with them!  
A special thank you to, my friend and colleague Mary Asper from Codding Hollow Associates for helping me with this post. 
Until Next Time Go Fishing!
