How To Play The Magnetic Letter Bingo Game:
To begin playing this educational bingo game, your kids will fill in their game board with magnetic letters. They can put the letters in any order. If your kids are just learning the ABC’s, start with either the lowercase or capital letters depending on what they have learned. As their letter knowledge increases, your kids can use both sets of letters on their bingo board.
Next, you or the caller will pick a card and say the letter on it. If your kids have that letter on their game board, they will remove the magnetic letter. The first player to remove five of their magnetic letters in a horizontal, diagonal or vertical row gets BINGO!
This Magnetic Letter Bingo Game is an engaging and educational bingo game for kids to play in small groups, with a partner, or even by themselves as an enrichment activity. It’s a fun letter recognition activity for pre-readers who are learning the ABC’s!
