An Alphabet Bingo Twist
We enjoy playing Bingo! Alphabet Bingo, Numbers Bingo (homemade), & Outside Sounds Listening Lotto are a few games that we own. I give it a big thumbs up because the children are learning and they don't know it. The kids love it because it's fun!
Adelle and Jonathan both recognize ALL the uppercase letters. Adelle recognizes all the lowercase letter and Jonathan is almost there. We have moved on (per Adelle's lead) to beginning letter sounds.
Yesterday, we played lowercase letters Bingo (Hooked on Phonics version) with a twist. I called out the letter sound instead of the letter name. We also used our pom pom magnets to cover the letters instead of the chips the game came with. They enjoyed that as well.
Adelle is on the ball with this, but Jonathan still hasn't learned all the sounds. When he couldn't figure out which letter to cover, then I'd show him the letter in my hand and repeat the sound. He happily covered the letter I showed him. It looks like he isn't thrilled in the pic above, but I think he's just tired of the camera flashing at him all the time. *Flashing a devilish grin* What can I say? I'm taking after my grandmother, who always whipped out the camera when us kids would visit.
This summer, we are going to play a LOT of bingo games. We just enjoy them so so much!
