This is another in a series of simple bingo games to learn and practise vocabulary. This time on the subject of Christmas, to fit in with your festive planning. I usually have a range of activities to do for each subject. Such as a song, game, worksheet, craft, etc..
There are bingo boards for up to 6 students, so if you have bigger groups, you will need to print more copies and put them in groups of 6 players. Print off the pdf file linked at the bottom and laminate them.
You will also need to print off and cut out the bingo cards. There are the other 2 pages of the pdf and you will need to print them off back to back. The pages should line up on any printer. Laminate and cut all the squares out.
How to play
- Give each student a bingo board.
- Place the cards, picture side down, on the table in the middle and spread them out evenly over the table.
- Students take it in turns to choose a card from the centre. If they have it on their board, they can place it on top. If not, they must return it to the table. I get students to say the name of the vocabulary item on the card without showing it to the other students. That way, the other students have to listen and remember where the card is, if they have it on their board.
- The student needs to complete their board with all their vocabulary to win.
The game usually lasts 15-25 minutes depending on the size of group and their luck! It’s a good way to practice vocabulary associated with Christmas to fit in with your curriculum and planning.
I hope you enjoy it!
