Instructional Ideas

  • Provide the vocabulary definitions for readers to practice beforehand, or have class members copy each word and definition as it comes up in the text
  • Laminate the bingo cards to use with multiple classes
  • For the bingo markers, provide pictures of prominent symbols or characters from the play, or have readers create their own markers with images from the play

Pros

  • Encourages readers to think about the unfamiliar words in the play
  • Provides vocabulary that occurs more than once in the text, allowing readers to build on prior knowledge
