Synonym Bingo!

You need only visit a mall to see that while everybody is using their ‘phones’, nobody actually has the device up to their ear. While the term ‘phone’ is still used, it’s fair to say that these are better defined as communication devices. The importance of that name is to signify a step forward in communication, away from voice interactions and towards text-based ones. For this reason, it’s important that your student, no matter their age, has the tools they need to excel in this world. One of those tools is a vocabulary. Below is a fun game idea from The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ which you can play with them at home to help them broaden theirs.

Make Your Own Synonym Bingo

  • You can either download some regular Bingo template cards from the internet or simply draw up your own creative designs. Keep the game to 3 by 3 squares.
  • Now, tear up around 16 small pieces of paper just big enough to write a word on each side.
  • Once you have these, write a word on one side and a corresponding synonym on the other.
  • With these, place them all on the table with all of the words facing up.
  • Use these words to fill in the squares in your playing cards, making note that you don’t include the same word or synonym twice.
  • Now you can fold up the pieces of paper and place them all in a bowl.

How to Play Synonym Bingo

  1. To play the game, each person takes a turn to take out a word and read only one word.
  2. Any players who have the synonym for this word (not the matching word) can mark off their card.
  3. The first player to reach a full line wins!
Apart from being fun, this game is completely adaptable. For example, if your student is not only looking to broaden their vocabulary but is also interested in furthering their History studies, include more words which can be used to describe historical events or monuments.
