Here are the details of Rhyming bingo.

What Rhyming Bingo Is About

Learning to rhyme is a helpful skill for students who are learning to read with phonics, This is because successful rhyming requires the ability to break-up words into component sounds, and match sounds in different words that rhyme with each other, This particular phonics game is designed to practise rhyming skills.

How to Play Rhyming Bingo

Playing Rhyming 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 words, and a marker pen (or set of counters).

    Here is an example of a typical Rhyming bingo card:

  2. The teacher (or parent) chooses a word at random, and reads out one or more "clue words" which rhyme with the target word, for example, if the word was "cat", the parent or teacher might say "bat", "hat", or "mat"

    Depending on how advanced the students are, parents and teachers can choose rhyming words (for the bingo cards and the clues) of the appropriate level of difficulty. For example, beginning students might play rhyming bingo using only simpler words, mostly CVC words, but more advanced students might play the game using words involving other phonics concepts as well such as bossy Es, consonant digraphs, R-controlled vowels, or vowel digraphs, or even with words involving more than one phonic concept. For the most advanced students of all, you could even mix in some irregularly spelled rhyming words.

    Here is list of groups of rhyming words to get you started - you can of course come up with your own rhyming words if you prefer. If using the table below, normally you would want to include one word from any particular group on the bingo card, and use one or more other words in the group as the clue words (please note, some words or groups of rhymes may appear in more than one box).

  3. The students then look for any word that rhymes with the clue, 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 winner 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.
