BRIEF
OUTLINE: A variation on bingo where students are required to communicate to get their squares crossed off.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Bingo grids. (Kids can draw their own)

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Get students to generate a list of objects on the blackboard.
  2. Hand out or have them complete bingo grids.
  3. Tell them to write the objects from the blackboard in their own grids, along with a number in each grid from 1 to 3. The number represents how many of that object they have.
  4. The AET then walks around the class asking individual students "how many Xs do you have" and if they answer in full, they get to cross of their square.
  5. As for the other students, they must have the same number of the item being called to be able to cross off the square. This will get them motivated to listen carefully to the item and the number.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Getting them to generate their own list of objects is a good way to get them engaged. Make sure though that they know how to pluralise the nouns that they suggest. And allow about 10 extra minutes!

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Look at whether the student has a blank square that will get them a line or a cross, and ask them about that one - they'll love you for it!

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • I found that the kids will be very motivated to speak loudly and clearly!
