Mr. Gabriel gave Speak Raku a happy feeling. (S+V+O+O Bingo)
To practice the form of S+V+O+O via listening, writing, reading and speaking.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Bingo card: 4 x 4 squares.
- A prepared grid (8 x 8 squares) with people’s names on the outer x- and y-axes, and the inside boxes having the following structure: verb + (direct object) + (object). Example: drew ___________ a picture. Subject (S) names are along on the vertical (y-) axis and the horizontal (x-) axis has the names of the direct objects, ie. Peter (y-axis) read Phil (x-axis) a book. I recommend writing the grid out on large paper to be posted on the blackboard for ease of reference and clarity. If you don’t have time, make it a worksheet instead.
- Prepared strips of paper with sentences derived from the grid.
- Hat or container for the strips of paper to be drawn from.
- Worksheet for writing practice.
HOW TO DO IT
EXPLAIN IT (5 MINUTES)
- Everyone gets a bingo card (and worksheet if made).
- Number the squares on the bingo card (ex. from 1 to 16, or however many number of sentences to be read during the game).
- Confirm the gender of the names on the grid.
- Read the sentences on the strips of paper (make sure the students can’t read them), substituting the written names with pronouns (e.g. “He read him a book” instead of “Peterread Phil a book.”). Listening to the sentences, the students refer to the grid, looking for “read _________ a book” in the grid and then finding out who “he” and “him” are by checking the y-axis (subject) and x-axis (direct object). **Students write the second name (the direct object, i.e. the name on the x-axis) anywhere on their bingo card.
PLAY IT (20-25 MINS.)
- For each sentence, choose a student to draw a strip of paper from the hat. They will read the sentence aloud.
- Students who correctly wrote the second name in the sentence (the direct object) can then circle the appropriate box on their bingo card.
- Bingo fun ensues.
WRITE IT (10-15 MINS.)
- Students receive their writing practice worksheet and create 5 sentences in the S+V+O+O form using the grid as reference.
