speaking, reading and writing/spelling skills.
The pack includes 10 non-editable files in a zipped format:
40 picture-only bingo 12-square grids, 4 per page (10 pages). You can give students
a random selection of pages, with students selecting the order of grids they play
from. You can also cut out the grids, and place them in a small bowl or similar object
on tables. Students select grids randomly from the bowl. Depending on the size of
your class, you should have several winners per game! You might prefer to laminate
the grids, especially if you are printing in color - students can use wipe-clean pens,
and you can recycle the grids many times. Color and B&W.

grids in order to win the game.
GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR CHRISTMAS BINGO!
Before playing, read all the words out loud in GERMAN several times, with students
repeating carefully - this not only helps students develop their GERMAN
pronunciation, but also introduces them to words they may not actually know.
There are some nice long words to encourage students to look very closely!
Students can also have their own calling card to read out loud from, one for a small
group of students is sufficient - this will help them to link sound and spelling in
GERMAN. The words focus on definite and indefinite article, plural and singular,
masculine, feminine and neuter, which maximizes opportunity to practice grammatical
concepts too. Give students a little time to have a quick look over their grids first.
Create bingo teams, each with a CHRISTMAS team name - playing competitively in
teams keeps up a lively pace! For each game, select a different Christmas word as
the ‘winning word’ for students to call out when they win the game. Students must
recite all the words in their grids to check that they have actually won - also giving
another opportunity for practicing language. As you call out words in random order,
remember to tick them on your calling card so that you can check the winners’ words
- you’ll be able to use the same calling card for multiple games. Let students be the
bingo caller too. Call out GERMAN words for GERMAN grids, GERMAN words for
English grids, and English words for GERMAN grids to vary the challenge.
VIELEN DANK UND FROHES WEIHNACHTSFEST!
