Autumn Tree Infant Bingo Game

This game was developed to play while teaching about Autumn. I usually have a range of activities to do for each subject. Such as a song, game, worksheet, craft, etc. I didn’t have a game to play, so I made this one.

Setting up

There are tree boards and leaf tokens. Print off the pdf file linked at the bottom and print out as many of the tree boards as you need and laminate them. There are 2 to a page. You need one per student. I have maximum 8 students in a class, so I can play as a whole group, or in two teams of 4.

You will also need to print off and cut out the leaves. There are the other 2 pages of the pdf and you will need to print them off back to back. So the leaves on one side of the paper and the number squares on the back. The pages should line up on any printer. Laminate and cut all the squares out.

You can use either a number dice (1-6) to practise numbers or a colour dice if you prefer to practise colours. You can pick these up online quite cheaply, or make your own spinner. The colours needed are red, blue, green, yellow, purple and orange.

How to play

  1. Give each student a tree board.
  2. Place the leaf cards, number side up, on the table in the middle and spread them out evenly over the table.
  3. Students take it in turns to throw the dice and depending which type of dice you are using, choose a card which has either the same number, or colour as the dice show.
  4. The student needs to complete their tree with one leaf of each colour. There are red, yellow, orange, brown and green leaves. If their tree doesn’t have the leaf they pick up, they put it on their tree. If it does, they can either swap it or return it. I always give little ones this choice, as makes them feel like they have done something, rather than lose a turn.

As their trees fill up, it will get harder to find the leaves they need to complet it, so it can last anything from 15-30 minutes depending on the size of group and their luck! Therefore, it’s a good way to practice colours and numbers with an autumn theme to fit in with your curriculum and planning.

I hope you enjoy it!

Sum Swamp

Sum Swamp is an exciting and educational game designed by Learning Resources to help children learn basic addition and subtraction. This game can be used in the EFL (English as a Foreign Language) classroom to engage students and help them improve their language skills relating to numbers and maths vocabulary.

Game objective

The game is played with two to four players and requires players to navigate their way through a swamp filled by throwing 3 dice; 2 with numbers and one with ‘+’ and ‘-‘ signs on them. The first player to reach the other side of the swam wins.

How to play

To play Sum Swamp, each player starts on one side of the swamp and takes turns rolling a dice. The player then either adds or subtracts the dice together and moves their game piece the number of spaces in the resolution. If the player lands on a number square, they rethrow the +/- dice and either move forward, or backward that number of spaces. There are also ‘odds’ and ‘evens’ squares, which require them to throw a number dice again and they can move if they get a corresponding number.

The game is suitable for children aged 5 and up, making it an excellent choice for younger students learning English as a second language as it provides them with a fun and interactive way to learn.

Sum Swamp is a fantastic game that can be used as a fun and interactive way to reinforce vocabulary related to maths and numbers with younger students and if you would like to buy a copy, please use my affiliate link below if you can, as it helps fund this website.
