Today I thought I would play a little game with Angelina. She loves to play Go Fish, ever since her Aunt Kelli taught her how to play.
Even though the game Go Fish is educational in itself (knowing your numbers, matching skills, plus the taking turns, winning losing aspect as well), I decide to shake things up a bit.
I cut 26 index cards in half, and wrote out the alphabet in Upper Case and Lower Case. Then I mixed up the cards, and we play Go Fish by asking each other for the Match to each letter. Angelina loved playing the new game. After two rounds of that we made up a new game and instead of asking for the actually letter name, we asked each other using the Sound of each letter.
This also helped me in knowing what we need to work on more. A little side note: The first game I won...(hard to let someone win in Go Fish, lol) the second game she won...and she immediately suggested playing again to "break the tie" :-)
Just thought I would share a cute easy craft with an added game in the end! Enjoy!
