4th Of July Bingo For The Classroom

Author: admin | Filed under: 4th of July, Bingo Friday Feb 12,2010

Are you a teacher or perhaps know one? If so, wouldn’t it be great to be able to create custom bingo game cards to augment daily lessons?

Here are a few easy steps to creating bingo cards that will help your students make easy work of remembering the people and facts that make Independence Day particularly special:

  1. As you go over your Independence Day lesson plans, jot down a few keywords from the lesson that you’d especially like your students to remember.
  2. Create your custom bingo cards at Bingo Card Creator. (Free trial, no download needed!)
  3. Laminate your bingo cards (or print them out on waterproof card stock) so you can use them again and again, class after class.

Note: It might be helpful to try out your bingo cards before having them laminated, just to make sure you are happy with the words you chose to put on the cards. The nice thing about having a program to create custom bingo cards is that you can easily create new cards as your lesson plans change.

Bingo is a great way to build vocabulary and word recognition skills in children. Having fun while learning about Independence Day will also make it more likely that your students will remember all you’ve taught them when summer vacation rolls around.

5 Ways To Mark Your Bingo Cards

ways to mark bingo cardsWant to mark your bingo cards with something other than giant green daubers? Here are 5 creative ways to mark your bingo cards:

1. Stamp Markers

You may have seen these in your local craft store if you don’t already have some. They look just like markers except when you remove the cap you’ll see that the “coloring part” of the marker is flat and has a fun shape. Point at a right angle with a piece of paper (or one your free bingo cards!) and press down gently. Lift and you’ll see a bright shape left behind. Turtles, birds, frogs, and random shapes are available. It’s up to you!

2. Bits of scrap paper

One fun way to use up extra bits of paper, especially heavy construction paper, is to use it for bingo markers. Players can use safety scissors and markers to make fun shapes and draw on their bits of paper before playing bingo.

3. Candy

Small pieces of candy make great markers and ensure everybody wins in the final round! Remember all the candy you bought on sale after Easter? Now is the time to use it!

4. Stickers

Many arts and craft stores offer sheets of holiday-themed stickers you can use to mark your custom bingo cards. (sign up for a free trial!) Most kids love to put stickers on things. Why not have them learn something while they’re peeling and sticking? It’s fun!

5. Crackers

You can use animal crackers, goldfish crackers, or any small cracker of your choosing to mark your bingo cards. Playing with food before it is eaten might be against the rules at the 4th of July BBQ but it makes for good bingo fun!

With customized bingo cards, fun markers, and a bit of creativity, you should be all set for a rewarding game of bingo that is fun for everybody!

Many of us gather on the 4th of July for a holiday BBQ with family and friends to celebrate the freedom our nation enjoys.

Here’s a fun version of the classic bingo game you can play at your family cookout while waiting for grandpa George’s special BBQ ribs to finish on the grill.

4th of July BBQ Bingo

1. Find your BBQ organizer (the one who decides what everybody is going to bring and makes sure 20 people don’t bring the same thing) and get a list of all the dishes you’ll be enjoying at your BBQ.

2. Then use the list of dishes mixed with words related to Independence Day to create a call list for your bingo game.

3. Create custom bingo cards just for your 4th of July bingo game!

4. Use little holiday themed candies, flags, or bits of colored paper for markers as you call out the words on your list. Have the winner help clean up after everyone is done eating! =)

Have a truly wonderful Independence Day! I hope you’ll let me know if you enjoyed a game of bingo this year!

Independence Day Trivia Bingo

4th of July Bingo Cards Flag

The story of the Declaration of Independence and the war with Great Britain is one of the most famous in American history.

Here’s a fun variation on Bingo that will give older children a bit of a challenge while letting the young kids fully enjoy the game.

Independence Day Trivia Bingo

  1. Make a list of facts about the 4th of July that you’d like to share as part of the bingo game. You can then use words from that list to build your bingo cards and make a call list to use in the game.
  2. Make your custom bingo cards. (Sign up for a free trial here)
  3. Do NOT cover the free space. Unlike other versions of bingo, don’t have the kids cover the “free space.” In the trivia version of bingo, you “win” the middle space by answering a question correctly. Make the questions as easy or difficult as you like. You might even offer a prize for answering very difficult questions.
  4. Use 4th of July stickers, candies, bits of colored paper as markers for the game and offer a fun prize to the first few players who shout “bingo!”

Have a truly wonderful Independence Day and enjoy your bingo games!
