Thanksgiving Bingo Riddles and a Giveaway!

Congratulations to Renee!  She won a free copy of her own!

“I love this game!”

You would have heard that coming out of my room on Tuesday when we played “Thanksgiving Bingo Riddles” by Speech Sprouts.  I have to say, I agree!

Like her other holiday riddle bingo games, there are an overwhelming number of boards, each with a unique assortment of answers and the option to print full-color or in color saving mode.  You could easily use this with an entire classroom and have no duplicates!

The riddle cards have rhymes, which I love as an bonus skill to address, and include a little picture of the graphic (in the event you’re feeling under the weather and need a little support).  I had my older artic students (2nd grade) read the cards to work on carry-over—the reading level isn’t too difficult.

It plays like classic bingo, so you won’t need to do much in the way of explanation and it covers a huge amount of Thanksgiving vocabulary including traditional foods, relatives, activities and history items.  There’s even an extension activity that has students make their own riddles about their favorite Thanksgiving food; again, perfect for a classroom or in language therapy.

I used my flat marbles (which kids love) as bingo markers, but there are cute turkey markers included or you could use harvest corns (I’m not a fan, so it’s safe in my room) or M&Ms (much harder to make sure there are enough by afternoon).

Click here for all of the details!

Or… take a chance on winning one!  I have a free copy to giveaway, but we’ll do this with a quick turnaround, since I head to ASHA next week.  To enter, leave a comment letting us know what you are thankful for this year and I’ll pick a lucky winner at random.  You have until Sunday, November 8, 2015 to enter (midnight EST).  Good luck!
