Spanish Bingo for any vocabulary or numbers
My friend Darlene told me about this website for your own Spanish Bingo. Make your own Bingo in Spanish cards for free online. Customize them with your vocabulary words. Several sites do this. Here is one site in which you can make printable Spanish Bingo cards.
Bingo with Numbers
Have your students play Numero to help them learn Spanish numbers. Have them make their own "Numero Card" (This Bingo variation comes from the resource section of Realidades.) Students fold a paper in half vertically (hot dog) and then in thirds. They unfold the paper and repeat the process horizontally. When students unfold the paper again, they should have 36 squares. Instruct the students to write n-u-m-e-r-o in the top six squares. Then they fill in the remaining squares with any number 1-100 (or whatever numbers you want them to focus on as long as there is a range of at least 40 numbers.)
Next call out a number from 1-100. Note that number on a paper that your students can't see. If the students have that number on their card, they cross it out. When a player has marked off an entire row vertically, horizontally or diagonally he or she calls out Numero! That student then reads those numbers out loud so that you can match them with what you wrote down/ called out. Learning Spanish numbers can be a lot of fun. Bingo/ Numero is always a great way to start out.
What do you do to teach your students numbers in Spanish? Leave your idea in the comment section.
You can have the students keep playing but try to make another Numero and then have them make an X or a + on their Numero board.
