“Bingo!” It’s a word I think we probably have all said after a round of the popular game. We can also use the classic game to build rhyming skills. Yep, rhyming bingo is not only fun, but it’s also educational. Phonological awareness activities are a great way to get a young child ready to read.
GETTING READY TO PLAY RHYMING BINGO
Full Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Materials Needed: alphabet 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 animal crackers. You could also use counting cubes, candy or buttons.
PLAYING RHYMING BINGO
Have the kids cover up their free spot in the middle of the board.
Call out a word. Each child should place a marker on a picture that rhymes with the word called. Get five in a row or column and call, “BINGO” to win.
For example, if you call the word fox, the child would cover up the picture of the box.
You could make up your own words or use this list of words to call out.
fox, car, throw, power, wig, plane, bent, rake, blue, hat, cone, bite, house, pie, stuck, bear, funny, bun, me, goat, racket, paw, log, and yarn.
