Talk It Up Bingo
Talk It Up! Bingo, by Rosie Simms, helps students focus on eight
different ways to describe an object. Featuring 150 everyday
objects, the game promotes vocabulary development using key
questions such as 'What can you do with it?" and 'What goes with
it?" Playing this unique bingo game helps students improve their
communication skills as they identify and explain the uses of common
Five Basic Categories
Each full-color bingo board features 25 objects, including five
objects from each of these categories:
• Clothing and Grooming
How Game Works
Talk It Up! Bingo combines aspects of a board game and a bingo game.
Players take turns drawing category cards that have easily
identifiable picture icons. Once a category is selected, a player
looks at his or her bingo board and chooses an object in the given
category. The player then spins for a question about that object. If
the player answers correctly, he or she places a chip over the
object's picture. Play continues until a player 'Bingos.'
Two Levels of Play
Two spinners are provided for different levels of play. The Level 1
spinner includes simple questions, such as "What color is it?" and
'What parts does it have?' The Level 2 spinner presents higher-level
thinking questions, such as 'Where would you find it?' and 'What do
you like about it?'
