Cut the posterboard into 6 in x 8 in rectangles. With a marker,
divide it into a 3x3 or 4x4 square board. Have your child select
a the magazine clipping for each square on their board. Cut each
index card in half, and write a letter of the alphabet on each. Place
all letters into a brown bag. Shake the bag, and select a letter at
random. Have your child look for a picture on his/her board that
starts with this letter/sound and place a button on it when found.
Once your child has a complete horizontal, vertical or diagonal
row, they make a 'bingo'!
