I don’t know where I learned about it, but someone got me hooked on Sermon Bingo as a kid. You’d write the alphabet in the margin of the bulletin vertically, and then you had to go through in order and try to fill in words from A to Z. (I always prayed for the minor prophets to be mentioned–they’re lousy with Z’s.)
If your kids are smaller, you might appreciate this week’s freebie: listening pages. Same idea, except they give you the words to listen for and you tally them up. She even had some for non-readers with pictures next to them…we might have to give that a try! I might even get out my laminator so I don’t have to print them every week…plus, who doesn’t love using Mom’s special pens?
You’ve got this, mama.
