Preposition Bingo Game
Help your children remember the prepositions by playing preposition bingo. My children played this game and one other game during the time that we studied prepositions.
Game play is pretty much like ordinary bingo; in the case of preposition bingo, you will call the word from the included word card printable that you have printed, cut out, and placed in a container. An optional challenge for this game (for the win) is to have the child who wins to correctly make up a sentence for each preposition in the winning row.
On this page, there are two game styles, a fancy game and a plain, possibly disposable game, which were generated rather than hand edited.
Fancy Preposition Bingo Game
Directions: Print cards and prepositions. Optional: Print on card-stock. Each card file makes two cards, so cut those out. The preposition file has 53 prepositions, the words are listed on the right. Print one file and cut out the small cards. Play as you would regular bingo except look over entire card for the word.
The Words to Print
Do you need an ordinary text file of the words? If so ...
Preposition List, A Text File The is just a text file; the word cards for the game are linked above
Optional: To make the words easier to handle, cover them with clear contact paper before cutting them out.
