can involve lots of practice at home, but when this practice takes
the form of a game instead of homework,
kids don't mind at all. This game combines the proven fun of BINGO
with letter and word recognition learning. Two levels of game-play
are possible -- the easiest level plays like a game of BINGO
except that the cards feature two words, such as cat and tire. An
adorable cartoon illustrates both words at once (in our example, a
cat is perched on a tire swing). A plastic tub shaped like a
bumble bee holds the plastic letters. Children place transparent
coins on the letters that are called, and whoever spells a word
first gets to shout "BINGO". The second level features
slightly more difficult spelling words and involves working with a
deck of word cards.
The game is simple, and the
concept is nothing ground-breaking, but Spelling Bee Bingo is fun
and worth every penny of its $10 US suggested retail price.
- Easy to follow game
- Two levels of game-play
to accommodate growing skills.
- The BINGO cards are not
laminated, so the game may easily become worn.
