BLOG HOP: Spring Has Sprung and Games Are Fun!

Boy are we in for a treat... or a few. A game (it's a FREEBIE!!!), a giveaway AND a blog hop!!!! Are you ready for this?!?

First, the game. Who doesn't love a good ol' fashioned game of BINGO?! It's one of those games that can be modified to fit just about anything being taught in the classroom... yet it's crazy fun. I use BINGO sheets a lot (... a LOT!!!) in my class. Since my kiddos are intervention (aka, struggling with reading), I have to make their double dose lessons fun to keep their attention and increase comprehension. In comes BINGO.

Sometimes I will use their trick words. Other times I will use nonsense words. I've even been known to use proper nouns, contractions, compound words, vocabulary and phrases.

(Note: I usually type in the boxes but unfortunately, my freebie isn't editable so you'll have to print out the pages and hand-write the words you want to use. But then I recommend laminating them or putting them in a sheet protector. This keep them durable for as long as possible.)

For covering up the squares, you can either use dry erase markers, foam shapes or paper scraps. And of course, there is a "free space" on each board... a spring chickie.

To get the freebie, click on the image below. It will take you to my Teachers Pay Teachers store when you can download these sheets for free.

And now on to my giveaway...  one super awesome person will score my entire Spring Bingo Pack complete with sight/trick words, nonsense words and more!! Everything is filled in so all you have to do is print and go. Awesome, right?!?! Don't miss your chance to win... enter now!! :-)
