Contractions Game - Bingo

My Contractions Bingo Game explores the conventions of contractions and aims to ELIMINATE the feral apostrophe in an enjoyable way. ;-) 

In this version of the game the CONTRACTED FORM IS READ out by the caller and the students cover the expanded form on their game boards.

What you Need:

10 to 30 players
1 caller
10 game boards
25 counters per game board
1 deck of contractions cards

Contractions Game

How to Play:

1. Students distribute game boards & counters.
2. The caller shuffles the deck then flips the top card and reads it to the players.
3. In their minds or aloud to a partner the students convert the formal speech to a contraction.
4. They then search their board to see if they have the contraction called. It they do, they place a counter on it. If not, they wait for the next turn.
5. Play continues in this way until one of the boards has all contractions covered.
6. On placing the final counter the first student to call ‘BINGO’ is the winner.

Variations:

1. The first player to get a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line is the winner. 
2. The first player to make a capital N or X wins. I use two different coloured counters for this version.
3. Do a web search for “bingo patterns”. There are lots of different ways to play. Get the students to pick which ones they’d like to play.

During the Game:

1. Be sure to use the words in meaningful sentences as the students are looking for their words.
2. If the students are Ok with it, add their names to the sentences. Use your knowledge of their likes and dislikes. Have fun with it.
