Amidst all of the excitement of year one, children are working hard to develop good concentration and memory skills. These skills will play a crucial role in a child’s early reading and maths development, as they learn to form letters and numbers, read words, focus, and follow complex directions. Building these memory skills can take lots of practise, but can also be loads of fun, especially when practise feels like playing a fun game!
Here’s a game that mixes the luck of Bingo with the skills involved in games of concentration and memory, and it adds a fun musical twist. This activity works well in the classroom, but it's also a great birthday party idea!
