This fun winter activity for preschool, kindergarten and 1st graders practices listening skills and self-regulation. The students have to pay attention to environmental sounds you commonly hear in the winter. You play these sounds (sound files included)and the students mark their spaces on their bingo cards. There are some common and uncommon sounds, as well as tricky sounds that your students may or may not be able to differentiate. That is ok. The main instructional goal of this activity is for the students to show good listening skills. The sounds students hear include animal noises, fun activities, weather, sports and chores commonly heard in the winter.
What you get:
Master bingo card (for the teacher)
26 unique bingo cards in color, each with 9 spaces.
17 unique winter sounds files in MP3 format that can be burned to a CD, copied to an iTunes playlist or played from your computer.
The sounds include an owl, penguins, ice skating, swishing pants, cardinal, sledding, chopping wood, fire, snow plow, bear sleeping, a child being hit with a snowball, walking in the snow, wolf howling, shoveling snow, dog sledding, dryer, and a blizzard.
What makes it extra special?
- I use real photographs
- Unique bingo game that requires listening to sounds instead of just looking at pictures
