    Penalties. Less than 3 consecutive boxes crossed - lose a finger.

    :mutters: It's fewer. Fewer than 3 consecutive boxes. Countable nouns.

    How about getting the kids to shout "Boobies!" instead of "Bingo"? Or bango, or bongo would do. Read stuff out in a silly voice: use an American accent if you're stuck for ideas. Do reverse bingo where the aim is to not mark stuff off. Or where bingo earns a ten minute nap.

    Just some ideas.

    I just give candy to the winners. They like it.

    Rather than reading off words, have the bingo items be possible aswers that students can get from other students when they ask given questions. Okay, that sounded clear as mud. Let me give an example:

    What is your favorite fruit? (choices: apple, banana, melon, orange, kiwi)
    What is your favorite sport? (choices: soccer, baseball, sumo, basketball, volleyball)
    and so on, for five questions

    Set up your handout with the questions and choices. Have spaces after them. At the beginning of class (or for homework the night before) have the students write their own answers in sentence form for each question.

    The bottom of your handout is the bingo board. Each question is a column, and the possible answers are written one to a square under their questions. Leave some space in the squares.
    Like so:
    FRUIT SPORTS WHATEVER WHATEVER WHATEVER
    apple baseball
    _____ _______

    banana sumo
    ______ ________

    and so on. Students wander around and ask each other questions. They fill in the space in the bingo squares with the name of a person who gives that answer. First bingo wins (or first with two bingos, or whatever). If you want to make it take a little longer, have them play evens/odds or rock, paper, scissors and only the winner is allowed to ask a question. Don't let them fill in the same name more than once (you could call off this rule if time is running low, since it takes longer to find lots of partners than to use the same one for an answer in all the categories.)

    Laura,
    What is an American accent? :?: Do you mean a NY accent or a Betty Valley type of Thing. Personnally I'm from Texas, our natural mode of speech is usually considered entertaining enough.
