Reading Skills Vocabulary Bingo
- Is it time to review some important vocabulary/terms about reading with your class? If so, then this BINGO game on important terms and vocabulary will be a perfect fit. The game is actually called "READ-O" to go along with the reading theme.
I designed this "Reading Skills Vocabulary"game for use with 4th graders, but it should work for third and fifth too. All kids can use a review of these very important words.
Some of the vocabulary that comes up in the game are: steps in a process, summary, main idea. plot, text structure, fact, opinion, making judgments, cause/effect, compare/contrast, context clues, and more.
When the students go to play the game, each student will get a reading themed BINGO board, which I renamed "READ-O". They will also get a sheet that has 32 answer cards. They will take a few minutes to cut out the answer cards and decide where they want to glue them on their BINGO board. They will mix them up, so that all boards in the class will most likely be different. Eight answer cards will be left over, so not every kid will have every answer on their board.
If you want to 'recycle' the boards year after year, just have this year's class make the boards, color them, etc. Get them laminated, and you can reuse year after year.
The teacher then has 32 question cards dealing with Reading topics (vocabulary/terms) along with the answers printed on the question cards. The teacher will pull one card at a time and read it aloud........... more specific directions beyond this are given in the packet, but you get the point. :-)
This is a fun way to review reading skills any time of the year, especially great to pull out toward the end of the year before your yearly standardized testing when it has been months since you have covered the specific content.
Have fun with this game.
