    How to Play CVC Bingo

    Playing CVC bingo in the classroom (or in the case of parents, with your kids at home) is very simple. Here are the instructions:
    1. Each student is given a bingo card or bingo worksheet containing a different random selection of CVC words, and a marker pen (or set of counters).

      Here is an example of a typical CVC bingo card:

    2. The teacher (or parent) reads out words from the list in a random order, taking care to pronounce each word as clearly as possible.

    3. The students then look for that word on their bingo card or worksheet. If they find it, they cross off that square (or cover it with a counter). Students start off with one square they can mark off without waiting for it to be called out - the "Free Space" square in the middle of the bingo card.

    4. The winner is the first student to achieve a winning pattern and call out "Bingo!" (the teacher or parent should check their card at this point).

      It is of course essential that the teacher (or parent) should explain what is required for a winning pattern before play starts:

      • If you want to play a short game: The winning pattern could be any straight line (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) of five marked off squares.

      • If you want to play medium-length game: The winning pattern could be any two intersecting straight lines of five marked off squares.

      • If you want to play a long game: The winning pattern could be to mark off every square on the bingo card. Please note however, if lots of your students are prone to miss matches, you might never get a winner this way!

      • If you have lots of students, and want to have multiple winners: You could have multiple winning patterns - the first winner is the first student to mark off all four corner squares, the second winner is the first student to get a straight line of five marked off squares, the third winner is the first student to get two intersecting lines of five, and the fourth winner is the student who is first to mark off all the squares on their bingo card.

    Suggestions for Variations of CVC Bingo

    Here are some suggestions for variations on CVC bingo:
    1. Try varying the winning pattern.

    2. Try using different words.

    3. Try rhyming bingo: For example, if the teacher says "cat", students can mark off "bat" from their bingo cards. This variation works best if you prepare bingo cards that contain only one or a few possible rhymes for each clue.
