Students in one of my classes are learning fractions so we’re playing Fraction Bingo.
Bingo makes it fun for students practice a math skill. Visit Simply Math to find a variety of bingo games that your students will look forward to playing as they practice their 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 minutes 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!
Ask 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 lead each game.
For a unique topic, you can choose to 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. —Leo Tolstoy
