    Main Activity

    Main Activity

    Aujourd’hui nous allons jouer à un jeu de Bingo pour réviser quelques concepts de grammaire.

    • Rules for students found on slide 3 (Les règles)
      • L’annonceur/annonceuse de numéros au Bingo va annoncer la lettre et le numéro correspondant. (The Bingo numbers announcer is going to call the letter and the corresponding number.)
      • Si vous avez cette case, vous devrez créer une phrase ou question qui utilise un point de grammaire spécifique avant que vous pouvez la marquer. (If you have this box, you must create a phrase or question that uses the specific grammar point before you can mark.)
        • La liste des lettres et leurs points de grammaire se trouve sur la diapo suivante (slide 4). (The list of letters and their grammar points can be found on the next slide.)
      • Choisissez un(e) camarade de classe qui va répondre à votre question. (Choose a classmate to respond to your question.)
      • La première personne à obtenir 5 cases en rang, gagnera. (The first person to get a row of 5 boxes, wins.)

    Bingo Review Game

    1. Use this link to access the virtual bingo game.
    2. Click on “individual links” to access a list of links for different bingo cards.

    1. Send each student a different link via the chat. *This ensures each student has a different bingo card.

    2. Once each student has a card, click “Call Game” to start.

    3. Click “Start game” to receive the first call.

    1. For example, if the first call is O-69, you will say “O-69” over Zoom.
    2. If a student has this number, they will then have to create an original question before being able to mark off that space.
      • *NOTE: Each letter corresponds with a specific grammar structure.
    3. For example, O corresponds with the “Si imparfait + conditionnel” grammar structure, so the students’ questions should be in this format.
      • “Que ferais-tu si tu gagnais 500 $ ?” (What would you do if you won $500?)
    4. Then have them pick another student to answer.
      • Example:
        • Student 1 : “Que ferais-tu si tu gagnais 500 $ ?” 
        • Student 2 : “Si je gagnais 500 $, je ferais…”
      • *NOTE: If the students are struggling to create their own phrases/questions, use this link and have them fill in the blank of the phrase that corresponds to the call number.
        • For example, if the call is O-69, the student will complete question #69:
          • S’il (jouer) à des jeux vidéos, il ne (faire) pas ses devoirs.
            Here they have to conjugate the verbs in parentheses according to the “Si imparfait + conditionnel” grammar structure.
            So their answer should look like this:
            S’il jouait à des jeux vidéos, il ne ferait pas ses devoirs.

    5. Send this link via chat.

    6. Play until someone gets Bingo, or until the lab is over.

    *If you want to extend the time of the activity, play a Blackout version of Bingo, where the entire card needs to be filled.

    *Encourage students to ask original questions instead of repeating the same questions that have already been said*
