The easiest way to learn and play
Create bingo cards with words is now very easy to do. Why should you play bingo with words instead of numbers? Using words to play bingo brings the traditional bingo game to a new level. It’s a convenient method to teach a second language and for students to learn the correct pronunciation. Playing “word bingo” with foreign students will help them to learn common English, French or Spanish words while playing a game. Middle school teachers can motivate students to read while playing bingo and winning prizes.
High school teachers can also play “dictionary bingo” with a list of words related to a specific topic like geography, biology or other subjects. You can play and adapt the game to better fit your needs and your educational goals. As an example of game procedure, give every student a bingo card, call out the definition, word, phrase or question. Students must then identify the word on their cards. Once a student gets five consecutive squares, he gets a bingo.
