BRIEF OUTLINE: Students ask each other if they did different activities over Winter Break. If the answer is "yes," they sign their names under the activity. The first student to have a Bingo wins.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • WinterBreakBingo attachment: One per student
  • Stickers or candy for prizes (optional)

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Introduce the activity by asking students what they did over Winter Break.
  2. Ask if they know the game Bingo, which they will, and explain this activity is a type of Bingo where they have to get four across, down, or diagonal to win.
  3. After handing out the bingo cards, demonstrate with the JTE and a student. Ask the JTE, "Over winter break, did you play a video game?" Before class, instruct the JTE to say, "No, I didn't." Then ask the student, "Over winter break, did YOU play a video game?" If the student says, "Yes, I did." have him/her write their name in the video game box. Or ask various students until you receive a "Yes" response.
  4. Explain that they only sign if their answer is "Yes, I did." Four signatures in a row (across, down or diagonal) is needed to win. When they have a bingo, they yell, "Bingo!"
  5. Students circulate, asking each other if they did the different activities on the board. The first student to get a bingo wins a prize (sticker, candy, high-five from ALT, etc.).
  6. After the game is over, have the students return to their seats and follow-up with a show of hands how many students threw a snowball, ate mochi, visited family, etc.


TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This activity could be used as a high school warmup, too.
