Sight Word Bingo Card Maker
Sight words (such as words on the Dolch sight word list) are words that children need to learn to recognize by sight to achieve reading fluency. They are generally common words that frequently in most texts (in fact Dolch used word frequencies to develop his list in the first place), and are often words that can not be sounded out.
Sight word bingo is a game that many teachers have found helpful for teaching sight words, and improving word fluency generally. The idea is that you play bingo, each student getting their own bingo card, and with the teacher taking the part of the bingo caller. However, there is a difference from the ordinary rules of bingo - instead of using the standard numbered bingo cards, you play using bingo cards printed with words selected by the teacher.
As you can imagine, this game can be a lot of fun, which helps engage the students, and the competitive element of playing a game can be quite effective as a source of motivation.
The principal requirement to play sight word bingo is of course a set of bingo cards (one per student) printed with the teacher's chosen words. It is possible to buy ready-made sight word bingo cards, but these don't provide the teacher with any flexibility over the choice of the particular words used. Moreover, ready-made cards of this type are often quite expensive. An alternative approach to obtaining the cards is for the teacher to print them herself - this can be done quickly and easily using a PC and some bingo card maker software.
