GETTING READY TO PLAY SUMMER ALPHABET 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 that are in color. If you prefer a set of 20 in color and 20 in black and white, you can visit my store and download both full sets for $1.50. Each board is different in the sets. You could laminate the boards if you want to use them for years to come.
20 COLOR AND 20 BLACK AND WHITE BINGO BOARDS
The set of 20 color and 20 black and white boards are just $1.50. Just click the button below to take you to the shopping cart. You will be sent a downloadable set via email. Then, print and enjoy.
Give each child a handful of counters. We used cheese crackers. You could also use counting cubes, candy or buttons.
PLAYING SUMMER ALPHABET BINGO
Have the kids cover up their free spot (sun) in the middle of the board.
Call out a letter. Each child should place a marker on the letter that is called. Get five in a row or column and call, “SUMMER FUN” to win.
If the kids are ready to work on sounds, you can call a sound and then have the kids cover the letter that represents that sound.
