Before starting the game, review the vocabulary with the students. This could just be the students repeating as the teacher reads. If the students are confident with reading, have the students read out the words instead of the teacher.
Use bingo to practice grammar by choosing a number of sentences to review and then choosing vocabulary to fit into those sentences. Have one or two sentence patterns for each row. Give the sentences to the students in order to speed up the process.
