Word Wizard Bingo is an excellent way for students to practice solving word problems over adding, subtracting, and multiplying fractions. This product contains 16 word problems that are aligned with Common Core standards and reflective of state test questions. The word problems are not in any particular order, requiring the students to truly think about what the key words are and what operation to select to solve.
Fraction skills included are the following:
-adding fractions/mixed numbers
-subtracting mixed numbers without regrouping
-subtracting mixed numbers with regrouping
-multiplying fraction by fraction
-multiply mixed number by mixed number
-multiply whole number by fraction/fraction of a whole
Included in the PowerPoint is the Word Wizard Bingo template (second to last slide). This slide should be printed (full size) and given to the students. Each student will create their own Bingo board by writing the fractions given at the top into any box on the board. Students solve the word problem shown on the PowerPoint, find the answer on their Bingo board, and cover with a chip. Four in a row wins a Bingo.

I played this game in my 5th grade inclusion class, and EVERYONE had a great time solving fraction word problems and becoming "wizards." It truly put excitement into the ordinarily mundane task of solving word problems. Even my most struggling student, academically and behaviorally, was motivated to solve and couldn't wait for the next problem.
