Math Activity - Bingo with a Twist


Materials Needed:
Blank Bino Sheets or student- created blank Bingo sheets
List of vocabulary words
Something to mark the answers – i.e. beans, counters

Instructions:
1. Make copies of blank bingo sheets

2. Ask students to copy vocabulary words from a word list you’ve provided onto their Bingo card in any order. Perhaps your word list is on a wall in the classroom, or you may write the vocabulary words on the board. **


3. Call out definitions. The student will look to see if the vocabulary word is on his / her card and mark it. Neither teacher nor students should call out the answer. Continue to call out definitions until someone marks five spaces in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. When a student marks five in a row he should say “BINGO”. Remind the students not to clear their cards until the win is validated.

4. In order to validate the win, the student must not only have covered the correct word but must state the definition of the vocabulary word. If a student gives a wrong definition, ask someone in the class to give the correct definition and the game continues. If the student gives all correct answers, then cards may be cleared. Students may exchange cards with a classmate too.


Variation –

If you are short on time, consider using sentence strips. Instead of using a traditional blank Bingo card, give each student a sentence strip and have students fold the strip to make eight spaces. I suggest using a smaller word bank for students to choose vocabulary words. Since the strip is horizontal, participants win by marking 4 in a row or whatever pattern the teacher chooses such as the first two on the right and the last two spaces on the left.



** Since, students have created custom cards. Consider placing the cards in protective sheets to keep them clean and reusable or laminate them. The next time you play Bingo, students will be able to use a different card.
