“Our Bingo Card Printer software can produce custom bingo cards on literally any subject that a teacher wishes,” said Sunil Tanna, director of Answers 2000 Limited. “However, the requirement for alphabet bingo cards – that is to say, bingo cards containing letters rather than numbers – is such a common requirement that we decided to offer a downloadable and printable set for free.”
Innovative teachers have found many ways to make use of alphabet bingo cards, including:
1. Phonemic Awareness Bingo: The teacher calls out words, and the students must identify and check off the matching initial letter squares on their bingo cards. For example, if the teacher calls out “alligator”
2. Letter-Writing Practise: The students must copy the called out letters rather than simply checking off squares.
3. NATO Phonetic Alphabet Practise: This is a revision game ideal for adult education, when learning the phonetic alphabet. For example, when the teacher calls “A” or “B”, students might be required to write in the phonetic equivalent “alfa” or “bravo”.
All the printable materials for alphabet bingo are available in a PDF format, and they include a set of 8 alphabet bingo cards. Also included is a ready-to-use call sheet for use by the teacher (acting as bingo caller). All the materials can be downloaded, free of charge, by going to the Bingo Card Printer website – http://www.bingocardprinter.com/
