Play-2-Learn Go Fish Card Games
by Franklin Rubenstein, PhD
Here’s a therapeutic twist on the classic Go Fish card game. The 12 versions presented here teach youngsters about character, responsibility, friendship, anger control, conflict resolution, feelings, stress, bullying, self-esteem, success, self-control, and manners. Each game includes two decks of 50 cards (one deck for grades K–2, the other for grades 3–5). And each card poses an open-ended question that the player must answer before he or she can request Henry Herring, Markey Mackerel, or any other fish needed for a match. Familiar and fun, Go Fish is an easy, affordable way for children to improve their social and emotional skills.
  • Teach players how to interact responsibly at school, at home, and within the community
  • Includes two decks of cards, one for each grade level
  • For 2-5 players
  • Grades: K-2, 3-5

Based on the popular card game, Go Fish, this game helps youngsters improve social and emotional skills in relation to Responsibility. There are two decks of 50 cards; one for each grade level. Based on the scenarios presented on the cards, players are asked to identify behaviors as responsible or irresponsible. Most of the questions are open-ended to encourage personal thoughts and expression. Players learn the importance of acting responsibly, the consequences of irresponsible behavior, and how to differentiate between responsible behavior and irresponsible behavior and learn to model what’s right. Participants also learn how to develop the necessary skills to make responsible choices.The game differs from classic go fish in that players must answer a question before they can accept a requested card. Instead of numbers on the cards they all have fun fish names and pictures. Rules sheet and facilitator guidelines included.
