Emotions BINGO

Emotions BINGO

Download includes: students, 24 (4 for each emotion) question cards to target happy, sad, tired, scared, angry, and frustrated, and six student BINGO cards. The BINGO chips are not included in this download, but I commonly use scrap paper or m&ms. Directions: BINGO questions will need to be cut after lamination. Pass out BINGO boards to each of your students. If you have more than six students in your group, you can print out and laminate duplicate copies of the BINGO cards. Place the BINGO questions face down in the middle of the students. The first student will select a card and respond to the prompt. The student will cover the emotion associated with the prompt. There are multiple prompts associated with the same emotion- so the student can select which face on their card that they would like to cover. The first student to have five in a row wins BINGO.

Figurative Language: Informal Assessment

Figurative Language: Informal Assessment

Understanding figurative language is an important part of being a successful social communicator. Without an understanding of figurative language, our students often interpret literal meaning from the message; becoming lost in the conversation. This is a resource that I like to use as a pre-test and a post-test during my figurative language unit. It is an easy way to measure student growth. Simply provide your student with a copy of the figurative language informal assessment and instruct them to use context clues to define the bolded phrases in the sentences. Divide the number of correct responses by 15 and multiple by 100 to get your percent of accuracy.
