Self Paced BINGO


 Everybody loves a good game of bingo but add math and this fast paced game can become frustrating unless, you make it self paced.  

I love playing games in my classroom and my secondary students love games.  Bingo is a popular game however, the fast paced learners get frustrated with those who need more time, the slower paced learners get frustrated with the fast pace of the game, and I end up repeating myself too many times.  I started playing self paced bingo this year and it has gone amazing.  

How do you play self paced bingo?

You create a google slide with all of the problems on the bingo board.  After creating it you share it with your students.  Students answer the questions at their pace to create the pattern you decided for bingo.  Once students have made bingo they share their board with you.  This is quick to check as a teacher since all of the students have the same questions in the same position.  We have been playing self paced bingo as independent work and homework in my classroom.  The next day I put all the student's with correct bingo boards on a wheel and spin the wheel to see who is the winner of our bingo game.  

I've created some bingo boards already you can check them out at my store if you are interested.

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
