What to do

  1. Before introducing the game, prepare bingo cards by gluing one picture from each rhyming set onto the card. For example, for the set grass and glass, glue grass to a square on the bingo board and save grass for the caller. Make sure to make all of the bingo cards different. If possible, laminate bingo cards.
  2. Make a set of cards for the caller to use during the game. To do this, reserve one picture from each rhyming set. Make sure to reserve the opposite picture from what was glued to the bingo cards. In the example grass and glass, put the picture of glass in the caller’s set.
  3. Pass out one bingo card to each student and enough bingo markers to cover the card. Today we are going to play bingo. I am going to call out a word. If you have a picture on your card that rhymes with the word I say, then cover up that picture with a marker. Hold up a marker to show students.
  4. Let’s practice. “Grass.” Does anybody see a picture that rhymes with grass? Call on a student. Good. “Glass” rhymes with “grass.”
  5. Let’s play for real now. If you get a straight line, make sure to yell out bingo. It may be helpful to draw a bingo board on the chalkboard and illustrate examples of straight lines.
  6. Make sure to check all rhymes when a student wins.
  7. You may wish to allow the winner to be the next caller.
  8. Observe small groups of students play the game. For students who struggle, give them help and make a note in an Activity Log.
