As I mentioned before, math comes easily for two of my children, while my 8 year-old struggles. Some days it is a fight just to get him to sit at the computer long enough to listen to the lesson, let alone complete the questions. However, this past week, I figured out if we made math a game and fun, he was more willing to sit and do his lessons.
This week he was working on counting money and making change, so we played “store” and used our fake money from Melissa & Doug, which looks and feels pretty real. We had fun making up things to buy and he did great counting back my change. I was so impressed and quite shocked, actually. He was enjoying not only playing store with me, but math. He even wanted to keep going, which never happens.
So I began brainstorming and figuring out ways we could “play” math all the time. Or at least more of the time. And one thing I know we need to work on are math facts. While he can add fairly well, he doesn’t know his math facts well enough to add quickly. That’s when it hit me…BINGO!
My kids love playing BINGO, so why not make them an addition version of the game to work on their math facts!
So I did.
I am so excited about this new printable set for you all. My kids are loving working on their math facts with these and we just can’t get enough!
Included in this set:
- Number Cards 1-100
- 5 BINGO cards
I have color-coded the number cards and the BINGO columns to make it not only fun, but a little easier to help your children when reading the numbers. B is pink and the answers are numbers 0-20, I is light blue and numbers 21-40, N is lime green and numbers 41-60, G is red and numbers 61-80 and O is dark blue and numbers 81-100.
I recommend printing these on heavier card stock and laminating them both for longevity and durability. This is our favorite laminator!
I hope to release several more of these printable BINGO Math Games for subtraction, multiplication and division as well, so be on the lookout for those coming soon.
