Educational Bingo Games

Is there a preschooler alive who doesn't like to play bingo games? What better way to practice letter recognition, number recognition, sight words, colors and shapes, money and more, than by playing bingo games!

These educational bingo games are best printed out on cardstock and either laminated or kept in plastic sleeves. If they are protected, dry-erase markers can be used to circle or X each box as it is called. Alternatively, you can use almost anything to cover boxes: pennies, small poker chips, legos, single base 10 blocks, beans...

There are multiple boards for each skill, so that you can play with multiple children at a time, or just play multiple rounds with the same child using a different board each time. In classrooms, you can break students into groups of 4 at a table, each child with a different board, so there is one of each board at each table. This is a great way to cross-check, since you should have one BINGO at each table all at the same time.

How To Play Bingo Games

The rules for playing preschool bingo games are simple:

  1. Every student gets to cover their center FREE square before the game begins.
  2. The teacher or parent will draw a random card from a bowl and read it out loud. The student will find and cover the space that contains that letter, number, color, or word. For example, if you are playing capital letter bingo, the teacher will draw a card with a letter on it, read the letter, and the student will find the letter on his/her board, and cover it with a token.
  3. Play continues until a student covers all the squares in a row across, column down, or corner-to-corner diagonal. When a student has a full row or column, they yell BINGO!
  4. Students must then read back each of the boxes they have covered in their BINGO row to confirm that they are correct.
