☃️ Describe The Perfect Snowman With BINGO

We created Snowman BINGO for your students to play in the weeks leading up to winter break. It also works well as an indoor recess activity or a brain break in the winter months! 

To play, students listen to the calling card and cover the picture of the word if it appears on their BINGO board: 

  • carrot nose
  • coal
  • glove
  • green bowtie
  • green scarf
  • mitten
  • red bowtie
  • red scarf
  • snowballs
  • stick arm
  • top hat
  • winter hat

Snowman BINGO Scaffolding + Extension Tips 

In addition to 3-in-a-row, play alternate forms of BINGO like 4 Corners, + Plus Sign, Blackout, X-Out. 

Support students who need help understanding the concepts by pairing up teams to work together to identify the words. 

Challenge fast finishers who already understand the concept to produce rhyming words for each word on their game boards.

And For Even MORE Snowman Fun…

We also suggest using it to reinforce your small group and full-class lessons in the following ways: 

❄️ You’re SNOW Match For Me! 

In your guided reading group divide the calling cards equally amongst players. Use a gameboard and go through each image one at a time and say the word as a group. The student who has the calling card lays it down face up. The first person to have all their cards face up wins.

🎩 Swat 

During small group instruction, create a grid of calling cards on top of a table and give each student a fly swatter. Read the word on one of the cards. The first student to swat the word card correctly sets the card aside in their own pile to keep score. The student with the most cards wins. 

🧣 Upcycle into Playing Cards

Print 2 sets of calling cards for students to play card games like Match It, Go Fish, or Snap.
