Yay! Let’s play Bingo! Synonym Bingo makes teaching/reviewing beginning synonyms FUN for students! What’s unique about this Bingo set, is that the teacher calls out a word and students have to find the matching synonym on their Bingo board….so it’s not a traditional “say and cover” Bingo. Students are really challenged to listen for, and think about synonyms!
You can use Synonym Bingo as a whole-class activity or as a small group literacy center. If you have a cluster of students in your class who need more of a challenge, see my store for the Synonym Bingo Level Two & Three, which contain more challenging words! See the guide below for which Synonym Bingo Level is appropriate for your students, OR, you can buy all three levels in my SYNONYM BINGO BUNDLE for only $6.00!
Here are sample words from each Synonym Bingo Level (to help you find the level right for your students):
Synonym Bingo Level One:
Synonym Bingo Level Two:
Synonym Bingo Level Three:
Included in the file:
-18 different Synonym Bingo Cards – You can photocopy a second set if you want to play as a whole-class activity.
-45 synonym calling cards –Cut the cards apart and use them to call out a synonym to the word that students need to cover on their Bingo board.
-A synonym calling card list – You can call out synonyms for the students to cover on their Bingo board if you don’t want to use the calling cards. Just highlight, circle or cross off a word once it has been called out.
-Two blank Synonym Bingo templates – These are great if you want students to fill in their own synonyms from a particular lesson you are teaching, or from hunting through a text for words/synonyms prior to playing Bingo.
-One blank set of calling cards – If you have students use synonyms from a lesson, these calling cards can quickly be filled in to play.
Synonym Bingo makes a great activity to have on hand for a sub too! Also, If you’re looking for more synonym activities, check out my new Synonym Tile Cards in my store.
