Language-based Games and Resources

Created by Beryl Irene Bailey, Ed.D., CCC/SLP


PINGO: Punctuation Bingo- PINGO is a critical thinking punctuation bingo game. Using the traditional bingo game, students listen to authentic statements and identify the punctuation they hear by placing a chip on the corresponding punctuation. PINGO was designed to provide students with repeated practice in monitoring and analyzing the purpose and reason for punctuation marks.   Patsy Period, Quincy Question Mark, and Eric Exclamation Point are crossing guards that put children in the write lanes for reading comprehension in a CLOSE read of books and on the virtual lanes of the information superhighway.  PINGO allows teachers to engage their students in punctuation and play.  Functional knowledge of punctuation marks promotes oral reading fluency, listening and reading comprehension and effective communications skills.

Morphology Matters: Getting Affix on Vocabulary - This 11 X 17 placemat provides teachers with a contextual framework for teaching syntax and roots and affixes.  Teaching roots and affixes are difficult vocabulary objectives that are oftentimes minimally addressed or often ignored in the curriculum.  Knowledge of roots and affixes give students access to hundreds of thousands of words. The Morphology Matters tool facilitates teachers strategically addressing roots and affixes while simultaneously teaching literary text structures.  While teachers instruct students in the characters in the story, with a focus on “who”, they also have an opportunity to teach the suffixes that mean, “one who_____.”  When reading about Benjamin Banneker they learn about an astronomer, scientist, inventor, and activist.  Students have just learned about three suffixes that mean, “one who”, -er, -ist, and -or.  They have also learned that the who is a noun.
