Want a fun game to help recognize the alphabet? Then Alphabet Bingo is the game for you. The box says it’s a 1-player game but I think it’s more fun when you have more players. The chips you pull out of the bag are double-sided so you can use the picture side or the letter side for your child to find on their bingo cards. The boards and all the chips are very well made and sturdy. I like that the letters you pull out also have pictures on them. It gives the child a chance to learn what words start with that letter or sound. I like to do more than just pull out a letter and have them find it. I will say a sound and have them find that letter on their board if they have it. Or another options it say something like "what does anchor start with?". Our daughter loves this game. I plan on taking it for play dates. My daughter and I play this game together and it has been a great way to teach her good sportsmanship. The first time she beat me she told me “I beat you!” but now she says “Good game, mama.” Teach life skills is very important and I love that this Alphabet game let's me do that.

For math it is very easy I make a list of everything she learned. On the last week of that 6 or 12 week any math she does that is on that list counts towards the review. Anything on the list that is not done during the week I give her a few problems on each. Because I want to make sure that she has understood the concepts I make the problems hard. If they are too easy there is no way for me to know if she really understands or if she can just do easy problems. For history I make questions based off what I have read from the textbook. I pull out the key information. We also do social studies and geography. I make questi
