Who doesn’t love a good game of Bingo?
I created an interactive slide deck for Bingo with the classroom objects.
NB: In the textbook a bicycle and car are listed in the classroom objects section. Who am I to judge? There’s also an mp3 player and a CD player. I just make fun of those. I also purposely chose the old cell phone image because that’s what’s in the book and we laugh about that.
NBB: On Wednesday, my college class created this list of supplies needed for French class and then math class. Look at the first thing they said for math class.
Xanax! I almost fell over laughing. They said math class is really stressful, so it’s helpful.
My bingo game is meant for student to drag nine objects of their choice onto the grid and then I will describe the object. So for pencil I might say, “You guys think it is necessary for math class, but it’s not Xanax and it’s not a calculator.” Then they’ll place a yellow dot on the object if they have it. If they get Bingo they’ll tell me what they had. Then they can choose nine new objects and play all over again. If we have time they’ll play in groups and take turns being the one to call out the objects by describing them. There won’t be time for this. This is the type of thing there is never time for in college class. (The memory game is in French, but if you watch the workflow below you’ll see how to change it to your language!)
In the slide deck is also two version of Memory. Let’s not kid ourselves that memory produces extraordinary language or is anything other than well, a memory game, but it’s fun sometimes. It could be a finish early activity. Students move the box on top of the grid to find the matches.

I’m always asked how to edit the master slide and make these types of activities so I made a workflow in case it’s helpful for you.
