Directions for BINGO!
Prepare: Print out different BINGO cards for each child plus the call sheet. Cut apart the call sheet and put the squares into a box, bag, or bowl.
Distribute: Hand out one Bingo card to each child (25 different cards available). Each child also needs 16 – 20 markers. The center square picture represents a “free space”. It should be covered before the game begins. The children will then place a marker (optional squares included),pennies, candies, fun foam pieces or something fun on the called word if it is on their card.
Call: The caller should pull out one word, read it, or describe it for the children to figure out.
Winning: Once a predetermined pattern (row, line, diagonal, corners, etc.) is covered on a card, the child with that card calls out BINGO.
