Play this addition bingo game for a fun way to practice Math facts. This free printable addition bingo game is a great game for young children to play in a small group. It is played like regular bingo, except there isn’t a free space.
Kids love playing bingo. You can play for prizes, but what I’ve discovered is with young children you don’t have to. They are happy they won. You can also have the winner be the next caller of the the equations. That allows to be able to focus on helping students who need help.
You will need something for students to cover the numbers on their bingo card such as bingo chips, mini erasers, pieces of paper, blocks, or gems. It may also be helpful to have manipulatives for each child to use to solve the equations. Whatever you have been already using is the best choice because they will be comfortable using it and can focus on finding the sums on the game card.

- 6 Printable Bingo Boards (all different cards)
- 40 Equation Cards
