How to play Fishy Flashcards
You can use Fishy Flashcards as simple fish music flashcards by showing the student the card and asking them to say the appropriate answer. But it’s much more fun when you use these Fishy Flashcards as much more than just fish music flashcards. Here’s what you need to make a great fishing game:
- Fishy Flashcards
- A fishing pole (If you don’t have one, you can make one with a stick/yardstick, string and a magnet
- Paper clips
Place a paper clip on the mouth of each fish. Lay the fish face down on the floor and ask the student to “fish” for one of them. When the student pulls up one (or more) cards, they can answer the question.
Students can earn points for their team (or keep the fish music flashcard) by correctly identifying the flashcards. Young students love this great carnival game! You can also use the Fishy Music Flashcards to hold up and review concepts with piano and music students.
