    Using the Language Builder App with Picture Bingo

    Topics: Blending Hands-on & Digital Activities, Autism & Preschool Lesson Plans, Language Builder App, Autism and Language, Autism Technology, Elementary (4-12), Lesson Plans

    Lesson Description

    Students will use the “Picture Identification” activity within the Language Builder app to call out the bingo prompt.  

    Goals and Objectives

    • Identify and label familiar objects
    • If playing in a group, confidently call out bingo prompts
    • Matching bingo prompt to pictures on their playing card.



    Language Builder App:

    • Open the app and click on “Activity Setup” in the top right hand corner
    • Select “Picture Identification” on the right
    • Select word list and click on categories.
    • Select the topic that matches the physical bingo game (i.e. if you have the Everyday Object Bingo set select Everyday Objects) 

    Physical Materials: Pass out bingo cards and markers.


    If playing individually

    Depending on the level of the child, you can work on different skills. If they are working on identical matching, when the picture come up on the screen teacher can provide the label (prompting child to repeat) and child will find the picture on their bingo card. If they are working on expressive labeling then they can do both jobs, call out the picture AND find it on their card.

    If playing with a group

    Students can take turns being the Bingo caller and using the app


    To add additional level of difficulty, students can provide a description of the object rather than the name when they are the bingo caller.

    Students can also work in pairs with one bingo card for additional support.
