Most of us tend to think of bingo as a game played mainly by older people, but today variants of the game can also be found in many schools and even kindergartens. The difference is that whereas the version of bingo played by seniors is principally enjoyed as a leisure activity, the version played in schools and kindergartens is played as a learning game, and is particularly used for teaching the alphabet, phonemes, and reading in general.

Kindergarten worksheets are often of much value in helping kindergarten children learn and re-inforce basic concepts in an interesting way. Small children usually like to do things rather than just read or listen. They also get bored rather easily. Therefore giving them well-designed, illustrated worksheets to do makes it easier and more fun for them to learn. Completing a worksheet also gives a child a great sense of fulfillment. In fact, not just for kindergarten, but even for older learners worksheets can form a valuable part of the learning process. There are many good workbooks available for kindergarten children. However with a regular workbook, a child can do each activity or worksheet only once. A good option is to use printable kindergarten worksheets. These are basically digital versions (like ebooks) of worksheets that can be bought and downloaded to your computer from the internet or from CDs and then printed out. The advantage is that you can print out whichever sheet you wish. If you need to re-inforce a certain concept more you can usually print out that sheet again. Of course you will therefore need to have a computer and a printer. Do choose worksheets that are appropriate for the childs level, since children can get discouraged easily, if they are unable to perform the activity. Well illustrated worksheets with cartoons are also more likely to appeal to children. Worksheets that use common situations children come across at home, school, in the market place etc and that use common objects known to children would be more relevant.
Its September and time for your child to start kindergarten. You have purchased the school supplies, the new backpack, new clothes, and new shoes. The first day of school you are so excited for your big kindergartener! But when you get to school, it is quite obvious that he is not as excited as you are. This school is much bigger than his preschool. It is full of unknowns. And he definitely does not want you to leave! Many a child will not allow her parents to leave her in the classroom with the teacher for weeks into their kindergarten year. There are many books about kindergarten that help children with ABCs and 123s and those are very helpful. But when a child needs to feel comfortable about being left in a classroom, what that child needs is a book that will walk him through the kindergarten year in a way that would help him feel more comfortable about his parents leaving him in the classroom.
