To set-up: 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, or whatever else you can find.

Using the spelling word list, write one word in each of the squares of your BINGO board. 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.


To play: The caller uses the spelling list to call out words one at a time. 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, it’s fun to try and fill up the whole board!
Have fun learning spelling words while playing BINGO.
