A standard December favorite of both me and my students each year is my “Christmas Carol Bingo Game.” Hopefully this game will also become a favorite in your classroom! Click the link to get the PDF download of my original Christmas Carol Bingo Game. This game is my music-spin on traditional Bingo; players have to listen to and identify Christmas carol melodies on a pitched instrument (piano, xylophone, etc.) and then mark their cards accordingly. The challenge is the “caller” will say a column (C, A, R, O, or L) and then just play the melody (no words included) – this challenge reinforces listening skills and melody recognition.
The PDF includes:
- Directions for Playing the Game
- Materials Used
- 15 Original, Unique Bingo Cards
- “Caller” cards to keep track of what Carols have been called
- Sheet Music to the 9 Christmas Carols used in the Game
NOTE: This game would be an excellent outside of the music classroom…think class Christmas party, Sunday School classes or parties, Christmas get-togethers, even office parties! In my experience, even adults have gotten a kick out of this game! Enjoy!
