Bingo is an easy game to play and also easy to teach. A popular choice when teaching phonics and numbers, Bingo is also often used for picture/word association in early learning.
Games are one the most popular ways for students to study vocabulary and repetitive information. Use vocabulary bingo in language classes or with any content area that has a vocabulary with definitions for students to learn. This activity uses kinesthetic learning techniques as students get to use markers and bingo cards. It is also visual as they search for the written or typed words and audio as they hear the definitions and words called out.
”Sight words” is the term for words that readers should recognize instantly. Recognition is important because sight words are so frequently used—making up, by some estimates, 50 to 75 percent of all words that children are likely to encounter. It is also important because many of them do not sound as they are spelled, making them difficult to sound out using knowledge of phonics. Having the sight words within his or her repertoire gives the child a better chance to grapple with more difficult and infrequent words without losing the sense of what is being read.
Vocabulary Bingo is a game for the whole class that encourages students to study and review their vocabulary words. The objective is to be the first student to get bingo by matching the definition given by the teacher to the vocabulary word on their bingo card.
