A “bingo” like game where kids learn not only about the 10 Commandments, but are able to recite all 10 commandments by memory! Involves your whole audience.
GAME AND 100 BINGO CARDS INCLUDED!
As with all Family Action Agents teaching videos, learning and fun are our top priorities!
You have just purchased an excellent TOOL in helping your kids learn from the Word of God! Make sure you go over the video a few times to be sure you are aware of how it is presented and to be comfortable in its presentation. In other words, you want to have a sense of command and excitement that beams out of you while this experience is happening! Remember a tool does not take the place of you as a leader! It is there to enhance the gifting of talents God has given to you in instructing your kids!
The best advice we can give is to think of yourself as a TV game show host! You will not just be playing a video and sitting back waiting for your kids to respond, but will be right there with them in the moment and excitement that transpires.
For this game you will first need to prepare the “Bingo” cards. (Best idea is to print on card stock and laminate each one. If you don’t have a laminating machine, go to Walmart or a hardware store and get clear shelving paper to cover both sides and cut out around each card.) Notice you have 100 DIFFERENT CARDS and a TRACKING CARD (which needs to be checked off as the game progresses). Also, you will need white board/erasable markers and a small square of felt material as an eraser for each child. Decide on teams ( boys vs. girls, right vs. left sides, age levels, etc.)
First, using the LEARN VID, have the kids learn the 10 Commandments by memorizing the “I AM THE LORD” phrase (each letter will represent a word for a commandment—SEE THE WORDS IN THE VIDEO I (…do not worship idols)… A (…husbands and wives should be
faithful to each other) M (…do not kill) T (…do not steal) H (…obey your parents) E (…do not be jealous) L (…always tell the truth) O (…there is only one God) R (…take a Sabbath day to worship God each week) D (…do not use God’s name as a swear word).
Make sure when you read each commandment, you give a brief description of it.
Now you are ready to pass out the “Bingo” cards, markers and felt square erasers.
Next. introduce and give the rules for the game. Then play a game with the kids with the CODE 10 PRACTICE vid. As each letter is shown have them shout out (with your help) what word that letter stands for before the answer comes up. Then – it’s “BINGO TIME!” Tell the kids to “X” out the free space. Once they have 5 boxes checked off across or 5 boxes checked off down, or 5 boxes checked diagonally, they will stand and yell out “I GOT IT!” Always pick the first child who stands up. If all answers are correct, (use your tracking card to confirm the right answers), they will win 1000 points for their team .
After doing all the above, play BINGO 1, BINGO 2, AND BINGO 3. If no one wins with the first BINGO VIDEO then go to the second BINGO VIDEO part and so on. You or a helper use THE TRACKING CARD-TO MAKE SURE THE WINNER HAS ALL THE CORRECT ANSWERS.
The great part about this game is that immediately you can play again by switching around the BINGO VID PARTS in any order and/or giving out new Bingo cards to everyone. (If you have more than 100 players, try partnering them together with one card or make more cards by printing out more from the master cards. (Remember, even though you have more of the same cards, doesn’t mean everyone is going to get BINGO.) MOST OF ALL – ENJOY THE GAME!
