  1. Fill a bucket/pool with water and place the “fish” in the bucket/pool (water is optional).
  2. Have your daughter “Go Fishing” for letters.
  3. When she “catches” one, have her identify the letter and place it on the chart PDF.You can use this to reinforce the letters she knows and add a few new ones. She might have so much fun that she’ll keep throwing the letters back in to do it again.
