Give Bingo a Twist!

BINGO, A WELL LOVED GAME FOR FOREIGN LANGUAGE CLASSES! Great for practicing all sorts of vocabulary, the combinations are endless and always timely. As I was walking down the hallway this morning, I saw a group of my second graders playing math bingo-BUT WITH A TWIST! (and I immediately said to myself, I gotta share this!) They were playing what I dub 'REVERSE BINGO'... in other words, instead of starting with no chips on the board and covering squares as they are called, the board is covered with chips to start with, and as vocabulary is called, the chips are removed until someone has uncovered 5 in a row- ¡BINGO!

Bingo with a twist for foreign language classes

NOW, I AM SURE THIS ISN'T ALL THAT ORIGINAL, but I just love the idea of turning the game around to give my students a little something unexpected, and therefore a little more motivating. Nothing like novelty to spice things up! I'd love to hear how you mix up Bingo-or any other traditional game-share in the comments!

AND FOR ANOTHER FUN GAME TO PLAY, check out this post on how to play GATO with the whole class!
