Bingo Card Makers

 

 

 

 

Lanternfish ESL now offers a number of bingo games for vocabulary building. For each theme there are bingo card generators at two levels: 3x3 easy and 4X4 hard. The 4x4 contains all of the words from the 3x3 plus the added words in green for enrichment. Teachers can print as many unique cards as is necessary for their class. After you go to the card generator (which opens in a new browser) just simply refresh the browser to get a new card. You can use pennies as counters or you can laminate the cards and use erasable markers.
