Why This Is Helpful

Language play and writing can be fun-in fact, they should be fun. Have fun with language and share language play with your child and they will learn as you play. †By creating Bingo boards in preparation for a field trip, outing, or event, children can think about what they will see and do.† This anticipation will help them ready themselves for their adventure!
