Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
Submitted: August 23, 2001
out a piece of blank paper to each student. Have them fold it
in half twice and in half again the other way 2 times. Once unfolded,
you should have a total of 16 squares. Have students copy their
spelling words- one in each square. (Note: All words may not all
be used.) Don't forget to use one of your squares as a FREE space!
Students can either keep their own boards or trade with someone
else. Pass out some kind of "marker" for students to
use. (beans, pennies, math blocks, etc.) Call out each word and
spell it. Students mark their boards accordingly. Once a student
has "Bingo", they must spell out their words to gain
the prize. Repeat for several rounds. Kids can't get enough of
this old-fashioned game!
