Identifiying Complete Sentences and Addition Bingo: A Few Freebies

Happy Monday to you!  It really is a happy day because I have a few freebies to share with you!

Last week, we worked on identifying complete sentences and incomplete sentences.  One of the things we did was play a game of Two Corners, a variation on the game Four Corners.  Since we only had two categories, we only needed two corners: one for complete sentences and one for incomplete sentences.  I didn't make any signs for the corners.  I just told the kids which corner to go to for each category.  I gave each student a card with a sentence/incomplete sentence printed on it.

So sorry about that glare!

The students were tasked with reading the card and deciding if it was a complete or incomplete sentence and then going to their corner.  Once there, the kids checked each other's cards and I let a few volunteers share their cards with the whole group.

You can grab a copy of these cards by clicking here. Feel free to use as described above, or however you'd like!

Another fun activity my students did was make their very own bingo board to use when we play addition and subtraction bingo.  It's a big deal to make your own bingo card!  I tasked the students with numbering their boards using the numbers 0-20.  I told them that they did not need to use all of those numbers, and that they could use a number more than one time.  I laminated the cards so that we can reuse them throughout the year.


To play, I used addition and subtraction flash cards.  I simply pulled a flashcard out of a bag, read the problem, and the students covered the answer. Bingo is always such a hit with kids, and mine are so excited that they will get to use these boards often when we have "Fun Friday" time.

Enjoy!

  1. I was just about to sit down and make some "sentence" vs. "phrase" cards. These are perfect!!!!! I can't wait to use them. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you SO much for your generosity! My students can use both the complete/incomplete sentence practice (appreciate the simplicity of these) AND the addition/subtraction practice with BINGO (pure genius!!). Thank you.
