Go Fish Swimming Toward Self Control Game 
by Franklin Learning Systems 

Ages 5 - 10 
Grades Kindergarten - 5th Grade 

Go Fish Swimming Toward Self Control card games play like classic Go Fish. There are two decks of 50 cards in each game - one for grades K-2 and the other for grades 3-5. The games differ from classic go fish in that players must answer a question before they can accept a requested card. Instead of the usual number and picture cards, the cards have fun pictures of fish and fish names. For example, a player may ask "Do you have any Henry Herrings?" If the player receives a Henry Herring card, the player reads the question on the card aloud and answers it. All questions are open ended. If the player did not have any Henry Herrings, the player would say, "go fish," and then the first player would take a card from the "ocean" (extra cards in the center of the table). Each game comes with a rules sheet and facilitator guidelines.

Swimming Toward Self-Control addresses the importance self-control and impulse control during school, home, and after-school activities. Even kids who have not recieved a diagnosis of ADD or ADHD have problems with self-control from time to time. Everybody has impulses that could cause inappropriate behavior. This game helps players take charge of their impulses instead of their impulses taking charge of them. The game utilizes proven techniques for improving self-control, including pausing to think about possible consequence, delaying gratification, self-talk, and problem-solving strategies.
