4. Play a BINGO transportation game by listening to and looking at picture cards as they are named orally.

Materials:
Ship in a bottle, small see -through plastic containers with screw on lids, plastic alphabet letters (with or without magnets), transportation pictures covered with tape, identification labels, On the Go Bingo game, markers, individual boards.

Procedures:
Set:
Show the students a model of a "ship in a bottle". Discuss how they think it got in there. Generate discussion with the whole group.

*Students need to unscrew one jar at a time and take out the plastic alphabet letters located inside. (These letters spell the label on the front.)
* They need to look at the photograph on the jar and the label and use the alphabet letters to spell the word.
* Once they have the letters in the correct sequence, their partner can check it for accuracy and put the letters back in the jar and replace the lid.
* Jars are passed on, with the teacher circulating with extra jars as needed.

Closure:

Students will gather for a large group game review--BINGO. They will share On the Go Bingo boards and markers. As the cards are drawn and named one at a time, they will search their boards for that form of transportation. If they have it, they will cover the picture with a marker.

Assessment:
Students will be observed as they play both games. In the bingo game, they will also have to correctly identify the pictures orally in order to win.

Supplemental Activities:
A wide variety of books, cassettes, games, word cards and songs to use independently in the classroom.
