Description

Are you looking for a FUN game that works on reading sight words, tracing letters / letter formation and handwriting ? This game works on all of those things and more!

Teachers call out sight words or write sight words on board for students to find on their bingo card. Students' BINGO cards include handwriting font that is perfect for TRACING and then space underneath each word to actually WRITE the word! This is unique as most bingo games do not have this space to write words! 20 bingo cards for the whole class, small groups, therapy groups and more. Extra cards included to make your own!

This is perfect for handwriting control with writing and forming letters of the alphabet. 4 different games included!

•Directions for game 4

•Let student’s create bingo cards by giving them the list of the site words (page 3) and letting them write the site words (page 24). You can laminate them and pass out different student’s work to each other to trace. If you do not laminate, you can have student’s use tokens (instead of just tracing) to play the game.

This is where I get my inspiration for this material. I have used my materials with a variety of children with different disabilities including learning disabilities, dyslexia, autism, sensory processing disorder, ADD, ADHD, visual impairments, deaf/hard of hearing, cerebral palsy, down syndrome and more.
