|I DO NOT have my students cut directly on the lines when cutting apart their cards. This would take a REALLLLLLLY long time! I have them cut in the white space between each card.|
|I show my students a quick way to cut their cards: First, cut into strips...|
|....then stack strips and cut into squares.|
When everyone is finished filling out booklets, we'll play a few rounds of vocabulary Bingo. Bingo cards are also included, but markers are not. I have my students cut out several squares of paper, which they keep in their envelope. I print out a copy of the words/definitions for myself to use as the calling card. I'll choose a word/definition, read it out loud, and students find it on their personally filled-in card. They LOVE playing this game, and usually beg for more! We'll play it several times throughout the unit, as well, and any time we have a few extra minutes. It really does help them remember the words!
|Vocab Bingo is one of the favorite activities of each unit!|
