Subordinating Conjunctions Bingo
ESL Conjunctions Game - Reading, Writing, Listening and Matching Activity - Intermediate - 30 minutes
In this rewarding teaching activity, students play games of bingo by completing sentences on a bingo card with subordinating conjunctions. Each student is given a bingo card. Each bingo card consists of five sentences with each sentence missing a different subordinating conjunction. The teacher calls out subordinating conjunctions from the caller's sheet in a random order. If a student thinks a conjunction goes in one of their sentences, they write it in the corresponding gap in the sentence. When a student has completed all five sentences with a different conjunction, they shout 'Bingo'. When a student shouts 'Bingo', they read out all five sentences. If the sentences are correct, the student wins the round. If the student has made a mistake, the game continues. Several rounds are played with students receiving a different bingo card each time. As an alternative or extension, the students are divided into groups of five. The students then play the game in their groups with students taking it in turns to be the bingo caller. This continues until all the bingo cards have been used.
