Bingo Card Widget
The “Bingo Card” Widget
A fun classroom game to e.g. reinforce vocabulary, this widget gives every student a scrambled bingo card.
Here are some examples of Bingo Card widgets that can be created with BookWidgets. These widgets are of course not fixed, but can serve as inspiration for creating your own Bingo Card widgets with your own content.
A fun game to practice reading the clock. The teacher reads out different times of day, and the student checks off the corresponding clocks his. The first student to have 5 clocks in a row wins.
A fun game to introduce or practice vocabulary. The teacher either reads out the definition of a word in French, or the English translation of the word; the student checks off the corresponding word from his bingo card. The first to have 5 words in a row wins
A fun game to get to know each other at the start of the year. All students get a bingo card with the pictures of their classmates (and staff members). The teacher either calls out people by name, or gives clues about a person on the card. The first student to check off 5 people in a row wins the game
The teacher calls out different elements of the periodic table by name, and the student checks off the corresponding symbol on his bingo card. The first to check off 5 elements in a row wins.
A fun and healthy intermezzo during class. Each student gets a bingo card with different short physical activities. When the teacher reads out an activity, everyone in class performs it, and checks it off the list. The first to check off 5 activities in a row wins.
A fun way to learn the younger ones to read. Every student gets a bingo card with sight words (such as the ones from the Dolch word list) on it. As the teacher reads out the words one by one, the student checks off the corresponding word from his card. The first to check off 5 words in a row wins.
