    Dolch Sight Word Bingo Cards


    One fun activity, which can really capture students' attention, but also helps teach reading, is to play bingo in class. Of course, we're not talking about ordinary bingo!

    What teacher does, is ahead of time, create a bingo card (also known as a "bingo board" or "bingo sheet") for each student in the class - this does not have to be difficult or time consuming, as bingo card maker, like Bingo Card Printer, software can do all the hard work of preparing the bingo cards. The bingo cards contain sight words (or anything else that you might like) in their squares.


    Suitability:

    These types of classroom bingo activities are suitable for:
    • Kindergarten and Preschool
    • K-12 Education including School
    • English as a Second Language classes ("ESL").

    How to Play:

    Here is how to play dolch sight words bingo:
    1. Before class, the teacher uses some bingo card maker software to pepare a set of bingo cards (also known as "bingo boards" or "bingo sheets") containing the particular words chosen for that class - one bingo card per student.

      You can use any of the following word lists to create the bingo cards:


      Here are some printable bingo cards prepared using the Dolch word lists:


    2. In class, you simply play bingo with the teacher playing the part of bingo caller, and calling out the words in random order.

    3. Students mark off words from their card as they are called out, by crossing the squares (or putting a counter over the squares) on their cards.

    4. The first student to achieve a winning pattern (the teacher needs to decide in advance what this is, for example a line of five crossed out items, or two intersecting lines of five crossed out items, etc.) and call out "Bingo!" is a winner.

    Variations:

    There are many possible variations of the game that you can use for teaching reading, vocabulary, English, and other subjects such as math and foreign languages. (In each case, you will need to prepare custom bingo cards, containing your chosen type of items using Bingo Card Printer or other bingo card maker software).

    Here are some other examples of educational bingo games that you can play:
    • Phonemic Awareness Bingo - The bingo cards are printed with letters. The teacher, reads out a word, and students have to recognize the initial Letter and look for it on their bingo card.

    • Rhyming Bingo - The teacher reads out words and students must find a word that rhymes with it on their bingo cards.

    • Vocabulary Bingo - The teacher gives the definition of a word, and students must find the matching word on their bingo cards.

    • Parts of Speech Bingo - The teacher gives a clue for a part of speech (for example, "a verb beginning with V"), and students must find the matching word on their bingo cards.

    • Foreign Language Bingo - The bingo cards are printed with words from a foreign language such as French, German, Italian or Spanish, the teacher makes bingo calls in English, and students must find the matching foreign language word on their bingo cards. The teacher can also reverse this, and use English-language bingo cards and make the bingo calls in the chosen foreign language.

    • Math Bingo - The bingo cards are printed with numbers which are the answers to math problems. The teacher calls out a math problem (it could be addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, or perhaps a problem involving decimals or rounding, etc.) and the students must solve the problem and find the matching square on their card.

    • Ice-Breaker Bingo - This is a good way to introduce students in a new class to each other and to teacher. The bingo cards are printed with the student's names. The teacher calls out the student's names in random order, and the corresponding student must stand up, introduce themselves and tell the class a little about themselves. You continue playing bingo in the normal way, but when a student calls out "Bingo!", he must not only have a winning pattern on his card, but he must be able to point out each of the student's whose name forms part of the pattern (if he is unable to do so, continue playing until one of the students can do this).
