Play Vocabulary Bingo!
Vocabulary development is a key component in upper-elementary reading programs. Students are usually given a list of important words from the reading material and asked to discuss their meanings and relationship to the story. A fun and simple way to review these words and their meanings with your child is to play a kind of reverse bingo that features definitions as bingo cues. It’s an easy twist on the classic game and it will prepare your child for the vocabulary challenges that lie ahead!
