Words That Begin With the Letter Aa Bingo

During Aa week, we played BINGO (sort of).  Using Microsoft Word and Microsoft clip art, I created six BINGO boards with pictures that all start with the letter A.  For example, the pictures were of things such as apricots, asparagus, apples, astronauts, astronomy, aviator, alligator, and so on.  I made a pile of "draw" cards.  Each card had one picture on it, which was also a picture on the BINGO board.  We took turns drawing a card and seeing if any of us had that picture on our board.  We did not do the traditional BINGO playing rules of B + the picture or N + the picture.  We simply looked for the picture somewhere on our boards.  We also worked to fill our cards rather than simply getting five pictures in a row.

After a while, Ella just thought it was more fun to play with the buttons, so she did some color matching instead.
