Finally, a fun way to reinforce the vocabulary of literature with small groups or the whole class! This familiar activity will have students actively thinking about the words Matt de la Penna used to bring the story of Last Stop on Market Street to life. Because students only have to recognize the word matching the definition, not generate it, it is ideal for discussing both new and familiar terms. Two complete games are included – chapters 1-15 and 16-epilogue. 30 game boards are included in each set to allow for whole class participation. The special calling cards, featuring fold over flaps to hide the answers, also give you the option of using them in centers - small group of students can play independently without a bingo caller. Because this activity is geared to younger students than most of my vocabulary bingo sets are, all the words are on all the cards. (On most of my vocabulary bingos, 30 words are used, so students may not have the word for every definition). Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential.
The words in used in this activity are arcing, boarded-up, creaked, crumbling, curb, ducked, fact, familiar, fine, freckled, graffiti, hummed, lurched, patter, plucking, sag, sigh, skip, slicing, soup kitchen, stray, surround, swirling, tuning, witness.
