Chances are, you've heard of the game Bingo. It's been around for some time, since 1530 to be exact. Did you know it originated in Italy and was called "Il Giuoco del Lotto d'Italia"? This lotto game further advanced in the eighteenth-century when the French added tokens, playing cards, and the calling out of numbers. And today? Well, you can find the game "Bingo" in every household or classroom in America. Let's face it, kids love to play games and compete against each other. Why not take advantage of this and incorporate a "Once a Week Bingo Play-off?" Studies show again and again across disciplines that games help kids learn. Multiplication.com has everything you need to set up your own game: FREE game boards and flashcards. You choose what you'd like your students to use for markers: pennies, beans, math counters, paper clips, candies, etc.
