What Decimal Bingo Is About

This particular bingo game is designed to help students practise decimal numbers and converting fractions into decimals.

How to Play Decimal Bingo

Playing Decimal bingo in the classroom (or in the case of parents, with your kids at home) is very simple. Here are the instructions:
  1. Each student is given a bingo card or bingo worksheet containing a different random selection of decimal numbers (note: these are not the standard numbers that appear on bingo cards, but are instead the answers to various decimal questions chosen by the teacher).

    Additionally, each student is also given a marker pen (or set of counters).

    Here is an example of a typical Decimal bingo card:

  2. The teacher (or parent) reads out (in random order) decimal numbers, or decimal problems (like converting a fraction to a decimal) - the answers to which correspond to the decimal numbers on the students' bingo cards.

  3. The students then try to look for the number on their bingo card, or solve the problem and find the answer on their bingo card.. If they find it, they cross off that square (or cover it with a counter). Students start off with one square they can mark off without waiting for it to be called out - the "Free Space" square in the middle of the bingo card.

  4. The winner is the first student to achieve a winning pattern and call out "Bingo!" (the teacher or parent should check their card at this point).

    It is of course essential that the teacher (or parent) should explain what is required for a winning pattern before play starts:

    • If you want to play a short game: The winning pattern could be any straight line (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) of five marked off squares.

    • If you want to play medium-length game: The winning pattern could be any two intersecting straight lines of five marked off squares.

    • If you want to play a long game: The winning pattern could be to mark off every square on the bingo card. Please note however, if lots of your students are prone to miss matches, you might never get a winner this way!

    • If you have lots of students, and want to have multiple winners: You could have multiple winning patterns - the first winner is the first student to mark off all four corner squares, the second winner is the first student to get a straight line of five marked off squares, the third winner is the first student to get two intersecting lines of five, and the fourth winner is the student who is first to mark off all the squares on their bingo card.

Free Printable Decimal Bingo Cards & Worksheets

Here are some free printables for playing Decimal bingo. They include a call sheet (for the teacher or parent to use for bingo calls), and a set of 8 bingo cards to give to students.

Note: The sample call sheet included in the printables, contains the decimal numbers. The teacher can either call out the numbers directly (when first introducing decimals), or call out problems (and perhaps write them on the blackboard as well) to which these decimal numbers are the answers. Some ideas for possible bingo calls that the teacher could make are shown in the table after the preview window.

To print, please click the Print button in the preview window:

Here are some suggestions for the types of things that the teacher might call out (it is a good idea to write the problem on the blackboard as well, while calling it out):

Suggestions for Variations of Decimal Bingo

Here are some suggestions for variations on Decimal bingo:
  1. Try varying the winning pattern.

  2. Try using different decimal numbers.

  3. Easier Variation: If calling out problems rather than the numbers directly, after the teacher calls out each decimal number, she could ask the class to give the answer to that particular problem, before moving on to the next bingo call.

  4. More Difficult Variation: Try mixing in other types of problems or questions.
