Name Bingo with a Twist
Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
Submitted: April 15, 2001
make up my own BINGO grid with such things written in the boxes
as, "Has Long Hair" or "Is Wearing Blue" or
"Read a Harry Potter Book This Summer." My students
then walk around the classroom and have their classmates sign
their names in the boxes that apply. They can only use the person's
name once on their BINGO cards. Then we all play BINGO. When a
BINGO is called, that student must stand up and tell which spaces
were part of his BINGO by saying, "Jenny has long hair, Skyler
is wearing blue and Miguel read a Harry Potter book this summer,"
and so on. When those students' names are called, they stand up
and wave "hello" to their classmates. And those 5 students
are all winners, too!
