  • Bingo
    Have students make a 5x5 grid on a piece of paper. Students fill each square of the grid with a number from 1 - 25.
    To play, the teacher calls out random numbers between 1 - 25 and students cross out the numbers on their grid as they are called out. If a student gets a row of 5 crossed out numbers, that students has a "Bingo" and has won the game.
    Numerous variations are possible. Instead of numbers, any topic can be used, just make sure that the selection of items to include in the bingo grid is the same or a little more than the number of squares in the grid. For example, to review vocabulary, give the student a list of 25-30 words they can use , say from the back of the book, and have them put these words in the bingo grid. A classic game.
