Last week, we picked up a Bingo Dotter from the Dollar Tree.
I didn't know what we would do with it at the time, but Breckyn picked it out of her learning box today so I had to come up with something quickly. Luckily, I have the best ideas when I'm forced to think of something last minute or spontaneously.
The first thing that came to mind was letter recognition, so I wrote lowercase letters randomly on a sheet of paper:
All I did was tell her a letter and she dotted it. Super simple, but she LOVED it! Look at that smile!
She wanted to do it again, but this time I wrote capital letters and had her dot the letters in her name, MOM, and DAD.
I was also thinking to do shapes with her and sight words with my Kindergartener. How have you used bingo dotters with your little learner?
