I love using the Smart board and what better way to use it than with whole group bingo games. I thought you might like this "Back to School Bingo" game that I will be playing with my students when they begin school (after Labor Day).
So Prepare Your Supplies
It's very easy to use this bingo game. First, print off the bingo cards and the bingo board for your students. Then your students can cut the cards apart and glue them on their bingo board.
Smart board Printing Tip:
For those of you who have not printed any Smart board documents. Follow these directions:
1. Go to print set-up and select landscape
2. Go to print, delete the date that automatically appears.
3. Print with or without the border (I usually keep the border when I print Smart Board documents)
4. Select the page numbers to print (page 3 cards and page 4 bingo board)
5. Add the quantity that you want to print.
Then Play the Game
Once your students have cut-out the cards and glued them to the bingo board, open the Smart board document and select the "Call Board" page for game play. Here you will be able to select the picture for students to find on their bingo board to cover. The caller can slide the called picture on the "Call Board" into the grid.
I created the "Call Board" to provide an easy visual for students to follow and I added extra "Call Board" slides (cloned) to allow playing more than one bingo game.
Let the Winner Call the Next Game
Once you have a bingo winner, allow your winner and a partner to call the next pictures and slide the pictures on the call board. This is a hit with my students.
Once you close the game, do not save and it will be ready for the next time you wish to play.
Here is a visual of the bingo game. The link is below for you.
