Instructions: Letters and Words (Montessori)
Fish for a Letter: Give each player one or more Bingo cards, and put all the small shaped letters inside the little bag and mix them up. In turn, starting from the youngest player, and by helping themselves with touch perception, the children will fish out only one letter. If it is present on their cards, they win by positioning it above the corresponding letter. Otherwise, they must put it back in the bag and then give the turn to their individual opponent. The winner will be the player who first completes all the words.
Other variations are detailed in the instructions.
