how to play

This flashcard game idea can be adapted to any language concept (in this case, to our Likes and Dislikes topic). The instructions below are just a starting point to inspire you.

  • Our Bingo is adapted from the game of bingo, and it is a very simple version of this game. Depending on your needs, you can choose different ways of covering items on the board (pictures or words).
  • Give twelve flashcards plus four markers (e.g. buttons or pawns) to each player.
  • Kids place their cards face up on a table, then cover four of them with their markers.
  • The caller (teacher or student) calls out names for any of the flashcards at random.
  • Kids uncover each of their chosen cards that they hear the caller names.
  • The first person to uncover all four pictures calls Bingo!
  • He or she then becomes the caller and the game can be repeated.
