Miss A is usually willing to learn as long as the learning is fun. Maths however isn’t her favourite subject at all and I struggle with her to want to learn. She is fairly good with her times tables, so I created a Times Table Bingo during the holidays focusing on the twos, fives and tens as I know she is confident on these. My aim is to capture her enthusiasm with the game and then move onto the threes, fours and sixes etc.
– Print and cut out the playing boards, question cards and markers.
– Take it in turns to turn over a question card and read it out. The first player to shout out the answer AND find the number on their board gets to cover the number with a marker.
– The first person to complete a line / the whole board is the winner.
Obviously some answers wont be on the board which is good practice for spotting numbers quickly, and good recognition skills can be practised. I did like the fact that Miss A got a little competitive when playing as it showed she was obviously enjoying it.
I have created my Bingo into a FREE printable for you to download to play yourself. It’s a PDF document that you can print on black and white in five pages which includes the instructions. You can download the printable here.
If you don’t want to create your own Times Table Bingo, then there are plenty of great resources available such as a times table placemat, educational poster, times table snap, or even a ready made times table bingo game.
