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 language Katherine Applegate used to bring the story of The One and Only Ivan to life. 2 BINGO SETS ARE INCLUDED – pgs. 1-179 and 180-end. Because students only have to recognize the word matching the definition, not generate it, it is ideal for discussing both new and familiar terms. 30 game boards are included 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. 30 vocabulary words are used on the cards, but each board only has 25; students have to really think about the words and their definitions, because they may not have a word to match every definition called. Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential.
The terms included in the first set are: addled, amends, bedraggled, cunning, dignity, domain, forage, gesture, grumbles, heritage, ill-mannered, juvenile, lame, majestic, merchant, mesmerized, nuzzling, philosopher, ponder / contemplate, pout, reconsider, scornful, scowl / snarl, shackles, sulking, surly, timid, tolerant, undaunted and unsuspecting.
The second set covers these words: annoyance, beckoning, bicker, coincidence, contented, cower, cradling, disarray, distinguished, flinch, gnaws, halt, incompetent, inspect, luscious, monstrosity, placid, plod / trudge, principle, publicity, reek, relent, reluctantly, smudges, socialize, spacious, sullenly, temperamental, trembling and wander.
