Opposite Bingo to Teach and Practice Vocabulary

Level/Age group:

This game is suitable for primary school ESL students who can read

Aim of the game:

To practice reading, spelling the opposites and have fun with the children

What you need:

Bingo cards

How to play:

Before the group starts to play, you need to check out if students know the meanings and pronunciation. Give out the ready made bingo cards to each of the pupils. Let them familiarise the contents of the cards. Then begin to say the words. Called out words have to be covered on their cards. Make them use counters or some seeds to cover their words. Whoever manages to put all six counters or seeds on the words, has to shout out BINGO! And wins the game.

Possible extension:

If you teach younger learners they can draw a story with the words on their cards. Then tell the class about the picture.
In case you have more advanced students, it would be an extension to let them make up a little story with their given words.
