- The KEY provides definitions of all the terms listed on the BINGO cards.
- You read out the definitions and the children put chips or checkers on each of the terms that match the definitions until they have a whole row across, up-and-down, or diagonally, of correct answers.
- When they achieve a full row, they call out, "Bingo!"
- Small, dollar store prizes, or points to be awarded at the end of the year for a larger prize, add excitement and motivation.
A quick suggestion: print Bingo cards on card stock and laminate at Staples or Kinko's. Then you can use them over and over again. If you want to have the children mark them with washable or white-board markers, they wipe right off for re-use (or when they make a mistake).
The following are links to .pdf files of the actual cards and the KEY with definitions to be read aloud to the children. Have fun and let me know how it goes for you!
