Set Up Your Spelling Word BINGO Game
Before you begin, you’ll need to gather a few simple supplies.
You will need a printable BINGO template, spelling list, and small items to use as markers. I used flat glass marbles, but you could also use mini erasers, milk jug caps, rocks, pennies, or whatever else you can find.
Using your child’s spelling word list, you will need write one word in each of the squares of your BINGO board.
Tip: You can reusue your BINGO board if you laminate it! Just write your words on the laminated board with a dry-erase or washable marker. We love this laminator for home use.
Now it’s time to play. You can play this game with one or more kids. Print out a BINGO board for each kid and make sure the words you list are in a different order on each board.
Special note: To make things easier for you, I created a simple 4×4 printable BINGO board. You can click on the link below to download and print.
How to play Spelling Word BINGO
One person will need to be the caller. (This is a great job for a parent!). The caller need to use the spelling list to call out words one at a time.
The player(s) put a marker over the word when you hear it. The first person to get a line across, down, or diagonal wins the game.
If you’re playing with only one child, you can challenge them to cover every word on the board.
Have fun learning while playing Spelling Word BINGO.
