“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).

I appreciate the versatility of using QR codes and Cariboo in a “guess who” format! It’s a great activity for attention to details and exclusion, both challenging concepts, in a fun venue!
