Are you looking for a fun and exciting way to practice Story, Spelling, Phonics, and High Frequency words with your students? Then why not try this Bingo-style game? My students absolutely love it!
Included you will find a game sheet and a set of flashcards for each story in the Reading Street Common Core 2013 (Unit 5) reading series for 1st grade.
Each game sheet lists 36 words taken from the series and a blank bingo-style grid with 25 boxes. The students choose 25 of the words and write them randomly in the grid.
The teacher or the “caller” shuffles the flashcards and calls a word out, giving students ample time to locate and cover the word on their grid with a Bingo chip, penny, or counting cube. The first player to get 5 in a row (vertically, horizontally, or diagonally) wins! (I allow the winner to be the “caller” for the next game. They love that!)
If you want to save paper, you may laminate the game sheets and use dry erase markers on them. I put the laminated game sheets and flashcards at a learning center after we play as a whole group. My students enjoy playing in small groups with their classmates…and I enjoy watching them have fun while they are learning their words!
The game sheets and flashcards are for the following Reading Street Common Core Grade 1 reading stories from Unit 5:
· Tippy-Toe Chick, Go!
· Mole and the Baby Bird
· Dot and Jabber
· Simple Machines
· Alexander Graham Bell
· The Stone Garden
So grab some Bingo chips and have fun!
Thanks for looking!
