Bingo Vocabulary Review Trick

November 4, 2014 1 Comment

Students get a vocabulary worksheet for their preparation task vocabulary. After completing the front, they turn it over to make a 25-square Bingo board on the back. We play Bingo to review the terms and students use dry beans to mark the words of definitions that have been read.


Dry beans work great for students because they cannot turn their paper over to “cheat” without spilling their beans. I, however, need something more mobile.

I put the key in a page protector and check off the definitions with a Vis-a-vis overhead marker. It is easy to keep track of what definitions have been read and I can easily circulate around the room.
