I started using Math Bingo to review last year in my classroom and it has been great! Each BINGO board has 24 essential concepts from sixth grade math. I usually group two or three units together in one game and it has provided a fun whole-class review.
This file includes fifteen game boards and cards to cut up so you can choose terms at random. You can laminate the boards and let the students use dry-erase markers to cross things off.
I like to let students work in partners and preview the board before the game begins. It is great to hear them discuss these important concepts. To play the game, I pick a card and set a timer to give them a minute or two to figure out where the solution is. It is also helpful to project the terms that you’ve already said (I use a document camera), so that students aren’t asking you to repeat yourself over and over.
When a group gets five spaces in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, they call out “BINGO”. When this happens, I always check their board with the terms I’ve called to see if they are correct. If they are, I usually give them a small treat or prize (I am not above bribery!)
I have created 6 Math Bingo Games for 6th grade common core math covering the following topics:
1. Ratios and Operations
2. Numbers and Coordinate Graphs
3. Properties and Expressions
4. Equations and Inequalities
You can purchase them together in my 6th Grade Math BINGO Bundle and get 25% off!!!

Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.
Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.
Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself, e.g., -(-3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite.
Understand signs of numbers in ordered pairs as indicating locations in quadrants of the coordinate plane; recognize that when two ordered pairs differ only by signs, the locations of the points are related by reflections across one or both axes.
Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
Understand the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line; interpret absolute value as magnitude for a positive or negative quantity in a real-world situation. For example, for an account balance of -30 dollars, write |-30| = 30 to describe the size of the debt in dollars.
