Bingo is a classic fun game that we can bring to our esl class and play everyday without students getting bored and it only requires a simple preparation plus teacher’s creativity. website such as this one: https://bingobaker.com/ can help to create sheets. you can use the usual numbers and letters, or get more creative with vocabulary you have recently studied.
If students can read this game can be very helpful for reading improvement. You can print the sheets of words. but in case students are young to read or you prefer to improve their listening skills it’s better to use pictures for the bingo sheet.
A usual way to play ESL Bingo is to put English vocabulary words/picture on the call sheet. Students then need to listen for those words as you call them out so they can mark them off. When there is a line of marked off words, the student needs to call “BINGO” and that’s the winner.
Bingo! it let us imagine a table surrounded with grandpas and grandma. but guess what? now you get to bring this to your class of any ages except under 3 years old. Also keep in mind the kids from 3 to 5 years old would have a hard time to get it. at least a few won’t shout Bingo even though they got it
Bring everyone. Let’s all play together because there is no limit for the size.
As earlier was mentioned for this ESL game we need the a sheet which you can create @BingoBaker or just use any photo or text editing software to create everything by your own.
If you use Bingo in the classroom on a regular basis, you might want to create reusable Bingo boards for your students. To do this, print a blank Bingo board and laminate it. Students can then use dry erase markers to fill in the boxes. You can also make boards from cardboard or cardstock (slip them in plastic sleeves if you like) and put Velcro dots on each square. When students make their own boards, they select from pictures and words that have Velcro on the back and simply stick them on the Velcro areas on the blank board. Have Fun😊!
