I’ve created Notehand Bingo for my two Notehand scholars.
Attached is a .pdf file which contains two different Notehand Bingo games with which to practice your Notehand skills: (1) “Brief Forms” and (2) “100 Frequently Used Words.”
Included in this file:
∙ 10 Notehand “Brief Form” Bingo Cards
∙ 1 blank Notehand Bingo Card (for filling in your own custom cards, if desired)
∙ 10 Notehand “Frequently Used Words” Bingo Cards
∙ 1 sheet of “Brief Forms” (to be cut out and used in the place of the numbered balls found in real Bingo)
∙ 1 sheet of “100 Frequently Used Words,” including blanks (to be cut out and used in the place of the numbered balls found in real Bingo; the blanks are for creating your own custom Notehand words, if desired)
∙ 1 sheet of red Bingo Chips, for playing pieces (or you can substitute coins, buttons, checkers, etc. if you don’t feel like cutting out all those circles! You can also buy Bingo Chips separately on Amazon, if you prefer.)
What you will need to supply:
∙ White card stock for the above print-outs
∙ Optional: I recommend getting 2 different colored card stock sheets: one for the “Brief Forms,” and another for the “100 Frequently Used Word” pieces. It will make them easier to sort should they get mixed up.
∙ 2 bags (Ziplock or otherwise)– one for the “Brief Forms” and the other for the “100 Frequently Used Word” pieces; these bags will also take the place of the traditional Bingo Cage (i.e. from whence you will draw out a word to call out to the players).
. A bag (Ziplock or otherwise) for each player’s Bingo Chips.
