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.

Based on the popular card game, Go Fish, this game helps youngsters improve social and emotional skills in relation to feelings. Players will learn how to recognize their own feelings, express feelings verbally in a mature way, identify feelings in others, and  handle difficult situations that involve strong or negative feelings. Players practice talking about their feelings in an open-ended and non-threatening way.There are two decks of 50 cards; one for each grade level. 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.
