Different variations on the game of bingo are today widely used in many different educational subjects. For example, versions of bingo are used in reading and math practise, for teaching foreign languages such as Spanish, German, or French, and in English as a Second Language classes for students learning English. The reason for this is that bingo is both a simple game to play (easy enough for even young children to master the rules), but also extremely adaptable while remaining fun. Teachers can thus modify the rules of the game, the play mechanics, or use customized bingo cards printed with words or phrases appropriate for the lesson topic (rather than standard numbered bingo cards), to adapt the game to any purpose.
Custom versions of bingo are especially popular around holidays such as Halloween, Easter, Independence Day (July 4), and of course Christmas – but bingo games can also be based around seasonal themes, and with the imminent arrival of Spring, a version based around the coming season, seems especially appropriate.
One common issue when introducing bingo to the classroom is how to create bingo cards with a customized choice of words or phrases. While it may be possible to buy pre-printed bingo cards based around particular topics, these are inflexible in that the word/phrase selection can not be modified, and buying significant quantities of such pre-printed cards can quickly get expensive. On the other hand, creating custom bingo cards manually is a lot of work, even if only a handful are required. The answer is Answers 2000’s Bingo Card Printer Software.
Bingo Card Printer is an easy-to-use Windows software program that makes it quick and simple to create and print custom bingo cards on just about any topic or for any occasion. The user can tailor the word/phrase list to their exact requirements, and advanced features of the software allow further customization (including colors, fonts, different-sized bingo cards and more). The software even includes hundreds of templates for immediately usable bingo activities – which can be used “as is”, or used as a starting point for your own projects.
The Spring bingo game that Answers 2000 have released is a complete ready-to-use activity that can be downloaded, printed, and used absolutely free of charge. Additionally, since all the materials in the game package were generated using Answers 2000’s Bingo Card Printer software, it demonstrates what is possible using the Bingo Card Printer software. Included in the Spring bingo game package is a set of 8 printable bingo cards, each containing a different combination of words or phrases relating to the Spring season, as well as a handy call sheet which can be used by the bingo caller (a role usually taken by the teacher when playing in the classroom).
