Word Bingo was one of the first apps I bought when I first purchased my iPad. My students still enjoy this app, returning to it frequently. For the $.99 price tag, this app offers a lot! First of all, you can create profiles for individual students so you can actually use this game as a progress monitoring tool since it tracks accuracy. There are several choices of word lists from pre-primer to third grade with options for just nouns and also for all words. The program states the words and players have to find the words on the Bingo board. When they beat their previous best scores, they earn rewards that they can redeem for games. The games are mostly well disguised additional reinforcers for the words they are learning! If students miss too many words in a round, the program offers them spelling practice and, through the settings, you can program how much visual assistance to provide them.
For younger elementary students and students with disabilities, Word Bingo is a great app for learning high frequency words. My students have found the games and activities to be fun and they have had an impressive amount of staying power. Definitely worth the dollar!
