This Bingo “Pingo” game is for parents, teachers, and ākonga to use. This bingo card game is for everyone to enjoy, young and old, in celebration of Matariki.
This resource is specifically for gaining knowledge about Matariki. Learners will have fun crossing out the items on their bingo card while listening to essential information about the various items related to Matariki. All you need to do is call out the items on their bingo cards, watch the “Aha!” look on their faces upon learning something new about the pictures, and you can even ask them to share what they know about them! Most importantly, you all have the thrill to wait for someone to shout “Pingo!”
Moreover, playing bingo has plenty of positive effects on students. It encourages competition, boosts their listening and recognition skills, and fosters their social interactions. It promotes a fun and engaging atmosphere where students can learn. It’s simplicity also makes it less of a hassle for teachers to prepare and use in the classroom.
After playing a couple of times you will only need to call out the name on the card rather than the information.
However, this is a perfect resource to put in your reading tumble for the rest of the year.
Perfect scaffolding and integration in the bicultural classroom.
One player per card or pairs 🙂
Have lots of fun learning about Matariki with this activity!
