Are you looking for a fun way for kids to learn about beginning sounds? Beginning sounds bingo is a phonological awareness activity that is a great way to get children ready to read.
GETTING READY TO PLAY BEGINNING SOUNDS BINGO
Full Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Materials Needed: beginning bingo sheets (free printable below) and counters (candies, buttons, crackers, etc.)
Just print out the bingo sheets. I’ve included 8 FREE printable bingo boards (see below) that are in color. Each board is different in the set. You could laminate the boards if you want to use them for years to come.
Give each child a handful of counters. We used mini erasers. You could also use counting cubes, candy or buttons.
PLAYING BEGINNING SOUNDS BINGO
Have the kids cover up their free spot in the middle of the board.
Call out a sound. Each child should place a marker on a picture that begins with the sound called. Get five in a row or column and call, “BINGO” to win.
For example, if you call the sound /t/, the child would cover up the picture of the tent.
A list of words is provided.
