Bingo! Telling the Time

a flashcard game for kids learning English

game instructions

This flashcard game idea can be adapted to any language concept (in this case, to our Asking and Telling the Time topic). The instructions below are just a starting point to inspire you.

Our Bingo is adapted from the game of bingo, and it is a very simple version of this game. Depending on your needs, you can choose different ways of covering items on the board (pictures or words).

how to play

  • Give twelve flashcards plus four markers (e.g. buttons or pawns) to each player.
  • Kids place their cards face up on a table, then cover four of them with their markers.
  • The caller (teacher or student) calls out names for any of the flashcards at random.
  • Kids uncover each of their chosen cards that they hear the caller names.
  • The first person to uncover all four pictures calls Bingo!
  • He or she then becomes the caller and the game can be repeated.
