    I saw these math bingo cards, never played them in class before. They are more a game than an educational tool but seemingly fun and fitting for a classroom.

    Anyone play Bingo in the class room before?

    I like the idea of reading out the answer like "5" and the students finding and crossing off "1 + 4"

    I play this...I also do ABC Bingo. This year the first two weeks of school my kids played a dice game in math. Then last week we did worksheets as review. All but one child scored a 100% on sums to ten. I truly believe that the dice game is responsible. They enjoyed doing it and they learned. My principal loved it when she visited.

    I also play sight word Bingo later in the year.

    I've used this with secondary mathematics. If you feel you have a group or a school of students that is generally unmotivated, you can make things into a game but just change the content. So instead of having direct matching on the bingo cards to what you say, you can give them algebraic problems to solve, all with different answers. if you don't have one pre-made, it can be too much work for a secondary teacher. I certainly wouldn't use something like word problems on a bingo sheet either. Anything like that would be better suited for some kind of activity where the problems are hanging around the room for students to walk around to.

    My students' favorite game is Round Cow, a rounding bingo game. We play at least twice a month; both because it is a good way to review and it is fun!

    I have color/shape, abc, number, sight word, rhyming, and probably some I have forgotten. The kids love it and they do learn from it.

    I remember playing this in grade school. I loved it. It must have been fun because it was about 50 years ago.

    I have played Bingo in class before. I have a great one where numbers are represented a variety of ways. So if I call "5" there is a ten-frame with 5 spaces coloured in, a box with 5 tallies, etc. and students mark off 1 of them. I call each number multiple times since it is represented on their board more than once.
