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 Jon Scieszka used to bring the stories in The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales 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. 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 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 dedicated bingo caller.
This activity features the words announce, author, awful, clever, decide, dedication, dependable, dwarves, enchantment, gagged, ground / grind, handsome, harvest, illustrate, lonely, narrate, pardon, pathetic, porridge, relative, rhyme, royal, sly, stinky, tale, unbelievably, uppercase, wheat, table of contents and big lug.
