While this freebie isn't particularly exciting looking, it IS tremendously useful and a great way to keep students engaged, involved and LEARNING!!
I use it in a game I call VOCAB-INGO and it truly reinforces ONE key word or concept by forcing students to brainstorm synonyms and related words.
Here's how you use it!
-Pick ONE key word for the game.
-Students must research AS MANY related words/synonyms for the key word
-On the bingo board, they write the word in the corresponding column. (If the synonym starts with A - D, they put the word in the first column.)
-Students fill the entire board and then the game begins
-Spin a spinner with A - Z on the spinner.
-Students cross off words until they get a BINGO.
-No crossing off duplicate lettered words...they have to wait until the letter comes up again!
-Award BINGOs only if the words the student reads off truly correspond with the key word.
It's not fancy but it is
