Animal Bingo in French

January 14, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: bingo teach kids french games

My kids have been begging me to play more Bingo games. I searched high and low to find a good one I can put here. If you click on the picture, it will take you to a site where you can print that one and others as well. They have multiple bingo boards, so it will be authentic Bingo you can play with your kids.

Print out an extra copy to cut out or write the name of each picture on a paper, so you can draw them out of a hat. Simply say the name in French and then your children can use markers to cover the correct picture. Below is a helpful list of animal names in French.

Vocabulary list

le mouton – the sheep
le gorille – the gorilla
le chien – the dog
le poulet – the chicken
le chat – the cat
l’autruche – the ostrich
la girafe – the giraffe
la fourmi – the ant
la mouche – the fly
le cochon – the pig
le lion – the lion
le papillon de nuit – the moth
le poisson – the fish
la cocinelle – the lady bug
la grenouille – the frog
le papillon – the butterfly
le scorpion – the scorpion

My kids love playing Bingo! They love it so much that after we finish a new group of French words we usually end the unit with a few games of Bingo. They love screaming out BINGO when they win. They have so much fun that they don’t even realize they are reviewing vocabulary that they have alreayd learned.

I made a bingo sheet that you can download from here:

The way my kids like to play is first we go over the group of vocabulary words. Today we did food. So as I said each kind of food in French they drew a picture of the word in a little box. We did this until they filled up their paper. If you use this method of creating a Bingo card before you actually play, you will be reinforcing the vocabulary twice as much so it’s very helpful to them in the long run. And if your kids are like mine they will love to draw their own pictures of le lait (milk), le pain (bread), l’eau (water), le biscuit (cookie), etc.

What I did for the winner of each game is they receive a little biscuit, which really made them extra excited about the game.
