"Using the Bingo program for vocabulary review is great! My students have fun, and
almost seem surprised when the result is an increased vocabulary. They didn't study.
They just play, and feel like they become bilingual 'by accident'." - Keith S.,
Vancouver, BC, Canada

Version 3 makes bingo card generation easier than ever
Version 3 of Schoolhouse Bingo brings a fresh new look with easy navigation ribbon,
four new math bingo generators (percent of number, rounding numbers,
metric measures, and doubles addition), a letters-of-the-alphabet
identification game, an import service for word lists created
in Vocabulary Worksheet Factory, the capability to combine pictures
and text on the cards, and new options and functions to make bingo
card generation for the classroom quicker and easier than ever.
"Between the Schoolhouse bingo program and the 10% discount at the Dollar store,
I've become the most popular teacher in our building. And additionally, I've introduced
the same game at summer school the past few weeks and all the kiddos have increased
their math skills at an exponential rate!" - Susan S., Special Education Teacher,
Seattle, Washington, USA
Designed for the classroom
The built-in random generator ensures that every bingo card is different. The cards
are printed on sheets with as many as 25 bingo cards to a sheet. The multiple cards
can then be used for either multiple games or for the students to play multiple
cards in the same game. Call sheets that make it easy to call the game as well as
check winning combinations are automatically generated for each game.
Because the bingo cards are printed on sheets of regular paper, students can simply
use a pen or pencil to check or cross out the called items. This eliminates the
problem of handing out and collecting markers which is often a bigger exercise in
classroom control than one might think.
To add some variety to the games, the bingo cards can play either the answers or
the questions. For example, your students can find the matching answers to basic
arithmetic operations on their bingo cards while you call out the questions. Or
your students can find the matching basic operations questions on the bingo card
while you call out the answers.
You can also use pictures to create graphical bingo games. For example, call the
names of polygons and students identify the matching shapes.

"Just wanted to let you know I really enjoy using both the Vocabulary Builder and
Bingo Card Maker. I really appreciated having to type the vocab. words and definitions
one time for each activity. This feature is a real time-saver for me! FYI - My class
enjoyed playing Bingo (with their social studies words and definitions) last Friday.
They even asked to play it after the next chapter." - Cal R., St. Louis, Missouri
