What It Is: 

32 separate Bingo Games with 320 Boards displaying words contrasting sounds and spellings + 32 Sets of Caller Cards + four 60-page books of pedagogy, instructions, ideas, reproducibles, and reference lists

Why You Need It: 

New--and even experienced readers--as well as learners of English as a Second Language who complain that "words aren't pronounced the way they're spelled" can benefit greatly from exposure to phonics (the correlations between the 40 or more sounds of the spoken language and the 26 letters of the alphabet used for spelling them). Lacking the time or resources to embark on a full course of instruction, they can acquire the major patterns of the system through pedagogically constructed games like those of Phonics Bingo.   

What It Does: 

At four levels of "difficulty" to address learners' various stages of ability, the whole package of 32 Bingo Games:  

"teaches" the pronunciation and spelling of a total of 688 vocabulary items, carefully chosen to represent nearly all spellings of all sounds of American English,  through comparison and contrast of items arranged in "minimal pairs" and groups  

starts out at the beginning and systematically progresses to mastery with: 

  • 72 simplest¬†examples of the most¬†Basic¬†Sounds = Letters Patterns, arranged into 8 games of nine picture items each, with sounds-symbols + words charted for reference below
  • 108 commonly-used, illustrated one-syllable words¬†typifying¬†Beginning¬†phonics patterns,¬†organized into 8 different games of ten¬†16-item grids each, with pedagogy at the bottom of each¬†of its 80¬†Boards¬†
  • 200 sample¬†Intermediate-Level vocabulary items with visuals,¬†including some with grammatical endings, in 80 25-box arrangements with sound-symbols vs. regular spellings listed underneath¬†
  • 288 one- and multi-syllable¬†Advanced¬†words showing¬†nearly all¬†regular, less common, unusual,¬†and¬†exceptional spellings,¬†arranged into ten 36-box grids of eight distinct games, above listings of contrasting phonics patterns plus irregular and exceptional spellings ¬†¬†

divides pedagogical material into areas of phonics-spelling focus: Games 1-4, 9-12, 17-20, 25-28 for Vowel-Sounds & Spellings (with Vowels Before r in Game 28); Games 5-8, 13-16, 21-24, 29-32 for Consonants + Blends in Initial & Final word position (+ Medial Consonants in Game 31; Silent Letters + Exceptions in Game 32)

offers everything educators and students need to succeed--in four (4) 60-page Activities & Ideas Books that:  

  • epitomize¬†the advantages of Phonics-based¬†preparation, lessons, interaction, practice, testing,¬†and¬†follow-up.¬†Benefits emerge effortlessly from word-level lessons and activities to improve participants'¬†pronunciation, reading, and vocabulary skills. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†
  • show teachers and language learners¬†how to best acquire and further their abilities with and beyond the hands-on¬†materials, providing game rules and leveled variants as wells as steps to follow before, during, and after game play. These may include ideas for playing¬†Small-Group, Card-Less, Meaning-Clue,¬†Do-It-Yourself,¬†and¬†Learner-Created¬†Bingo/Lotto;¬†applying¬†Caller Cards¬†to¬†Matching¬†or¬†Rhyming-Word¬†activities; conducting "Spelling Bees" and¬†phonics-based "Spelling Tests"; and using reproducible "Mastery Checks" that take little space but assess mastery of all relevant patterns and principles
  • make useful¬†reference information easily available¬†with¬†reduced-sized copies¬†of all¬†Bingo Boards¬†cited¬†in¬†Teaching Notes;¬†concise,¬†level-appropriate¬†Mini-Courses¬†of explained and charted¬†phonics patterns and rules for tutors, helpers, and everyone else; sequenced¬†Reference Lists¬†of targeted¬†Vocabulary Items,¬†often with supplemental listings of¬†Rhyming Words & Homophones¬†to¬†extend their usefulness¬† ¬† ¬†
  • helps educators and learners meet or exceed standards¬†of¬†Common Core, ELA (English Language Acquisition), ESL (English as a Second Language)¬†and other curriculum standards--through naturally occurring feedback, cooperation, and competition but a minimum of stressful extra work, tedium, or anxiety.
