- A short story (not included)
- Tell students they will be listening to a passage and give them a very brief outline of what it will be about, for example "You will soon listen to a boy called John about soccer."
- Ask the students to guess nine words that will come up in the passage. For example, students might write down: ball, David Beckham, goal, dream, field, etc. Get them to write the nine words in a bingo style grid.
- Read the story and if the students hear one of their words being said, they get to cross it off their bingo card.
- The first student to bingo wins.
- This could be used for JHS (I haven't tried yet) but I think it's perfect for HS level.
- The grid can be made bigger if you want the game to go on for longer.
- Any bingo variatons (for example, all standing up and when they get their first word they can sit down) can be used for extra fun!
