Zingo! Word Builder - Why-Games

Zingo! Word Builder

  • 1999

This word building version of Zingo! is a fun confidence booster for early readers! Ideal for players who are just learning how to put letters together to form words, it’s great for teaching spelling and vocabulary. With two levels of play, it’s designed to engage and support both beginner and more experienced readers. Just slide the Zinger and claim tiles to fill your Zingo! card with three letter words—pure Zingo “F-U-N!”

It is amazing how bingo style games still peak the interest of today’s children. I have played with 8 very different children (Ranging from age 12 down to 7) and they have all really enjoyed this game. The Zinger is fun, the clicking of the disks when they get placed back in the “hopper” is rewarding, and the strategies are many for placing tiles. Quickly differentiating between consonants and vowels is an important early reading skill, and Zingo gives unique opportunities for teaching their unique placements in words. Zingo is quintessential for the classroom and phenomenal at home.
