My 4-year-old, Olivia, is loving learning all the letters in the alphabet. The recent Uppercase/Lowercase Matching Game that I shared turned into trying to spell easy to sound words like bat, go, Mom, and Dad. We’ve used the matching game for color sorting, spelling, and letter recognition. To switch things up a bit, I put together a fun little ABC Bingo Learning Game. Mason, my 6-year-old, has enjoyed helping his little sister learn her letters and to read, so I figured this would be a great activity that they could play together.

ABC Bingo is the same as regular BINGO! An “announcer” pulls a calling card out of a bowl or bag and yells out the letter. Each player uses a marker to cover the letter on their game board if they have it.¬† There is 1 letter missing from each game board. The first person to get 5 in a row, whether it bit vertical, horizontal, or on a diagonal, wins the game.¬†This is such a fun and simple way to introduce letters to preschoolers.
Do you think your child would enjoy ABC Bingo? I personally love to use games as a teaching tool. Children are having so much fun playing the game that they don’t even realize that they are learning! Learning through play is great for all ages.
