Purpose: To practice recognizing words which contain specific sound-symbol relationships or
syllable types. To develop thinking skills and language skills by determining a word which
corresponds to a specific clue. This involves determining synonyms and antonyms, as well as
the past tense form of irregular verbs. In addition, many clues model a structure for defining
nouns, by starting with the category and then giving the function or description of the word.
Description: Bingo games are run on six different colors of card stock, with 3 bingo boards for

the teacher reads the word or clue card and the students find the corresponding word and cover
it with a chip. The winner is the first player to cover five in a row.
