釣魚遊戲 Fishing Game


Hello, friends!
Chinese New Year is just around the corner and in honour of that, our activity this week is a play on the phrase, 年年有餘 (nián nián yŏu yú), which is an auspicious saying for the Lunar Year meaning, “May you have abundance year after year.”




This week, we’ll be fishing for characters and as with all our activities and crafts, you can make it as elaborate or as simple as you want.

Quick Tip: The younger your child is, the fewer character options you should present them.
For example, if your child is 3, have them choose between 2 characters. If your child is 5, you can have 5+ characters.

  • 紙 paper
  • 剪刀 scissors
  • 筆 pen/pencil
  • 蠟筆/麥克筆 Crayons/markers
  • 磁性魚竿 Magnetic fishing rods
  • 曲別針 Paperclips


*Alternate materials: Cardstock, felt, sticks with string and a magnet tied/glued/taped at the end of a string, laminator, laminating pouches

 準備工作 HOW TO MAKE 
  • 畫一些魚,剪下來
  • 在2-5條魚上寫上字
  • Draw and cut out a bunch of fish
  • Write the character on 2-5 fish


  • 讓孩子為每張卡/每條魚背後填色美化一下
  • 重覆,直到完成遊戲所需的所有字卡
  • Have the children color/decorate the backs of each fish/card
  • Repeat until you are done with all the characters you want to use


  • 在每條魚上加個曲別針
  • Put a paperclip on each fish



*Alternate ideas: Instead of fish, you can cut out rectangles, circles, stars, cars, etc. Do whatever your child likes or you prefer.
*Quick Tip: To make the cards last longer, you can laminate before you cut. Make sure to finish coloring before you do.

 遊戲方法 HOW TO PLAY 

釣魚遊戲1 (3歲起,一人或多人遊戲)

1. 在地上或桌面放置2-5條魚,字面向上。
2. 由第一個人用磁性魚竿釣一個字。磁塊「釣」到曲別針的話,他就釣到了一條魚!
3. 下一個人釣另一個字。
4. 繼續遊戲,直到所有的魚都被釣上來為止。

Fishing Game 1 (age 3+, multi or single players)

1. Spread out 2-5 fish of each character face up on a flat surface.
2. Ask Player 1 to “fish” for a character by using the magnetic fishing rod. The magnet should “catch” the paperclip and Player 1 has caught a fish!
3. Ask the next player to fish for a character.
4. Keep taking turns until all the fish are gone.

常規,就是每天、不間斷地和孩子讀一課 — 哪怕只是僅僅一課。這比任何其他方法都湊效。這種常規會在孩子的記憶庫中建立起一個實力基礎,也養成一個好習慣,長遠來說不管對你還是對孩子都能排除很多不必要的挫敗感。



Consistency is key.

More important than anything else, consistently go over at least one chapter every day with your child. This will build a good habit and foundation in your little one’s memory bank and avoid frustration for both of you.

The longer break you take, the more characters your child will forget and have to review. Better to go slow and steady than to speed through a lot at a time and then stop.
