Similar to regular bingo, Money Bingo can be used whole class, in centers, or in partnerships to reinforce the math skills identifying and counting coins. Real coins or plastic coins (from any teacher store) are needed to play this version. Make several copies the following pages on cardstock and laminate for durability. The Money Bingo cards will need to be cut apart. When playing the game, the cards can be picked from a face-down pile or pulled from a sock. Students must use the correct coin(s) to mark their game boards when matching to a Money Bingo card. Students will match the coins to the correct values or names depending on their game board. The students continue playing until one student has five in a row (vertical, horizontal, or diagonal) to win.
Money Stack Bingo challenges students by requiring students to count coins in combination to create a specific value on their game board. This may be used to differentiate for higher level learners or after the students become familiar identifying pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters and their values.
