BRIEF OUTLINE: This is a Halloween-themed exercise and bingo game.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Practice pronouncing the six Halloween characters and six present tense verbs from the worksheet.
  2. Students create sentences using one present tense verb from Toolbox #1 and one word or combination of words from Toolbox #2.
  3. Students play bingo by pairing off, writing their partner's name on the bingo sheet, and reading their sentences.
    •  
      If their partner has a similar sentence, the partner responds, "Yes." If the sentence does not match, the partner resonds, "No."
    • "Yes" answers are marked with an "O" on the bingo sheet with the corresponding sentence character, and "No" answers are an "X."
    • Three matching sentences ("O"s) in a row is a bingo.
    • Students change partners after reading all their sentences. They must talk to 3 boys and 3 girls
  4. After playing bingo, the AET then rolls the dice to choose a row (1-6). All students in the selected row must stand up and   read a sentence they made for a particular Halloween character (one character per row).
  5.  

VARIATIONS:

  • Tara's Variation:
    • I set up the Bingo on the 2nd page with the nouns from Word Box 2, instead of Boy/Girl/Boy/Girl. (I reduced it to only 6 nouns)
    • First, students write 6 sentences on the front, using only the words from the word boxes.
    • For bingo, they walk around the classroom and find a friend. They play Janken, and the winner chooses a character. The loser must read their sentence for that character. The winner draws a circle in the box that corresponds to that character and the noun.
    • Easy to explain, and my grade 1 students loved it - they played past the end of class. NOTE: I also changed 2 of the characters to "I" and "You," so students have to think about whether to use an S-verb or not.
