Play Vocabulary Bingo!

3.9 based on 68 ratings

What You Need:

  • Paper
  • Markers
  • Vocabulary list
  • Bingo chips (or paper clips, beans, coins) or pencils

What You Do:

  1. Create bingo cards by using the markers to draw 4 vertical lines and 4 horizontal lines to form 25 squares. Write “BINGO!” in the middle square. This middle square is a free space.
  2. Each player should fill in his bingo card with vocabulary words from the list.
  3. Once all cards are filled with words, begin calling out vocab clues. However, instead of the actual vocabulary words, call out the definitions. Players must then identify the word being described based on the definition given and find it on their cards.
  4. Continue playing until one player fills in 5 boxes down, across or diagonally and calls out “Bingo!”.
  5. Rotate and reuse cards to play several rounds.

Note: Instead of bingo chips, players can use a pencil to mark boxes with a symbol, for example an “X” or a star. Choose a different symbol for each game.
