Bingo!

My Year 7 teacher, Mr Elms, used Bingo as a regular Friday afternoon reward. It was our favourite time of the week, and most kids in my class were engaged. There wasn’t a chance we were going to give up an opportunity to score a snake lolly! Little did we know just how educational those repetitive, but always fun, Friday afternoon bingo games were. In fact, they are the reason why I still know that 13 is a “Baker’s Dozen” and that 12 x 13 = 156, even though I left Mr Elms’ classroom a good, well, one and a bit baker’s dozens years ago!

Preparing a new bingo game to suit the topic or content takes time. So, we have almost 50 different Bingo games ready for you to download here on the Teach Starter website. The only prep left for you is to print, cut and laminate the classroom bingo games that you and your students love the best so you’ll have them for each Friday afternoon from now until forever!

Here are the ten most popular, most downloaded primary school bingo games in our teacher resources collection.


1. Pizza Fraction Bingo

Pull out a fraction card and have students put a marker over the corresponding pizza fraction if they have it on their card. Blank game cards are provided for you to add your own fractions in.
