You Oughta Know Blog Hop ...BINGO!

I am linking up with

Buzzing With Mrs. McClain

for 
This month is our LAST MONTH OF SCHOOL!
Paper is running low,  not making a lot of copies ( of anything ), and 
we are ALL TIRED!
But...the kids are still here & need to stay focused & on task!
So..
WE PLAY BINGO!
Not just ANY BINGO...make it yourself BINGO!
Here's how it goes...

First,
 I use a HFW list we have used ALL year.
Next,
 I give the kids a "recycled" paper...
I like to keep those I print on one side.
Colored  is ALWAYS preferred.
Then, 
We fold the paper into 16 squares.
( If the kiddos fold it "differently" it really won't matter).
After we have our "squares"
I put the HFW list on the doc camera.
I try to use 50 words or so.
We have studied these words ALL year...they SHOULD be able to read them!

SO...they write 1 word (of their choice ) in each square.
(If a "friend" made 20-24 squares...it's OK)
Once EVERYONE has written their choice of words..
WE PLAY!

I have them put their paper into a 
plastic report sleeve.
(We use the one in our desks that have the 120 chart on it.)
They get out their expo marker & get ready to play!

I use a blank white board  on the doc camera & write 1 word at a time.
We chant it, spell it, read it.
Then another word from the list, and another. SLOWLY!
IF they have the word, they cross it out with their white board marker .
ANY 4 in a row ( we call it a line ) is a 
WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER!

That is why it doesn't matter how many squares they use...
4 in a row is a WINNER!

They win 1 SKITTLE candy.
I choose 4 winners per game!

Then we erase our boards...
and PLAY AGAIN!

FANTASTIC  HFW  practice!
They begged to play again tomorrow!
We shall see!
