Students in one of my classes are learning fractionsÂ so we’re playingÂ Fraction Bingo.
Bingo makes itÂ fun forÂ students practice aÂ math skill. Visit Simply MathÂ toÂ find a variety of bingo games that your students will look forwardÂ to playing as they practice theirÂ math skills.
Print the cards, cut squares of scrap paper, and then put both in a zip bag. Students keep their bingo bags in their desks so they can play when there’s just a few minutesÂ to play one game. It’s the “If we finish our work and we’ve done it carefully we can play a game of bingo” approach. It can be a great motivation for students. When you start a new math skill, simply swap out the cards and keep playing!
AskÂ a very capable student to work with a friend (this can build social skills and students see the capable student as an asset to the class) or a struggling but prepared student (the student calls out all the answers!) to leadÂ eachÂ game.
For a unique topic, you can choose toÂ create your own bingo cards.

A man is like a fraction whose numerator is what he is and whose denominator is what he thinks of himself. The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction. Â â€”Leo Tolstoy
