We have coloring pages that go along with almost every item in the game. To bring up the coloring page set, simply click on the clickable words on the list above.
To keep this game simple for young children, I did not include every letter of the alphabet. I wanted your kids to be able to identify each of the plants and animals on the game.
If you are exploring nature with your kids, you can even spot many of these items right outside!
My goal was to get your kids excited about not only learning the alphabet, but the world right outside their door.
Skills to Practice
- Letter recognition
- Lowercase letters
- Beginning letter sounds
- Fine motor skills
Playing games like bingo are wonderful ways for kids to practice a wide range of skills. From fine motor skills to identifying the pictures on the bingo cards!
Kids can practice beginning letter sounds by saying the name of the item found on the card. They can also listen to the bingo caller as they say the letter and an item that starts with that letter.
Version 1: has both images and the lowercase letter associated with that picture
Version 2: has only pictures and no letters on the bingo cards
Having two versions also makes it easier to modify this activity for different kids. The cards within each version are identical except for the addition of the lowercase letters on the first set.
Both versions are included with the download. I love how your kids can practice the alphabet two different ways.
How to Play
- Hand out one bingo card per player
- Scramble the calling cards
- Decide on the winning bingo pattern
- Pick a calling card at random
- If a player has that item on their board have them mark it off
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 until a player has the winning pattern
Winning Bingo Patterns: three in a row up and down or across the board, diagonal across the board, around the perimeter, an X shape, or even black out.
Designed with young children in mind. Instead of the traditional 25 squares each board only has 9 squares.
Kids LOVE repetition which means you can play this game together several times to reinforce each letter.
