In Class

  1. Bullet Play Bingo.

  2. BulletPlay la Señora Sloan’s Destiny Bingo.
    Before the game begins, have the students circle with a pen one number in each row (they should have a total of 10 numbers circled). Make sure to check each student’s “board” to make sure it is complete and there are no “cross-outs.”  The teacher begins by calling any number he/she chooses.  If the student has that number circled, they put an X on that number. Next, the students get their turns. One by one they call out a number (naturally they should choose one they have circled) until one student sees that all of his circled numbers have been called.  He/she yells out “Bingo de Destino,” and is the winner.

    This game gives students a chance to practice saying as well as listening to numbers in Spanish. It is more active than your “typical” Bingo game.

  4. BulletDictate phone numbers; students must write them down.
