Grade Level Information
Standard: L.4.3: Use knowledge of language and its conventions when writing, speaking, reading, or listening.
Objective: The student will identify synonyms
Concept/ Skill: The skill behind this game is word knowledge. It is designed to help students learn and incorporate more words into their everyday language.
Card Markers are also given to each student, they can also be placed in the middle of the group to grab as needed.
Teacher will read off words from the synonym cards and the students will place a card marker of the word on their board that is a synonym to the word being read. The first person to fill a line horizontally, vertically, or diagonally yells bingo. The teacher will review the words the student has covered and if all are correct everyone will clear their boards and the game will begin again. If a word is covered that does not correspond with a word the teacher read the marker should be removed and the game continues.
Another variation I might add is that anytime someone calls bingo each student would have to write a sentence using one of the words they have marked on their card.
These can be found on the game PDF (Synonym Bingo)
I generated these boards on Bingo Board Generator using the words found in the game PDF. The PDF does supply boards that can be printed but only has two. If you need more the like above is a very easy tool to use to quickly get some made up.
My cooperating teacher had these available for my use but they can also be found for a pretty cheap price on Amazon. You could also cut construction paper into little squares or use other manipulatives found within the classroom.
