I am getting married in December and I have been stopping by Thrift Stores looking for glassware for the centerpieces. Every time I go, I feel compelled to look through the games in hopes of finding something cool to repurpose in my classroom. (I saw this cool idea on pinterest for a make ten game—but haven’t found those materials yet!)
Last night we went to a store in Salt Lake and I happened upon an old BINGO spinner cage. Instantly I thought “random number generator”. I looked at the price tag (a steal at $0.75!) and knew I just found a new game for my classroom.
I took it home, cleaned it up a bit and emptied the numbers. First, I checked to see what numbers were included (being a second and set, and not knowing what numbers a BINGO set includes). I laid them out on a hundred board. The set has a few missing, but overall it is in great shape!
Here are the supplies:
The game will be played like this:
Later in the year, I will give them a cube that says “one more”, “one less”, “ten more”. “ten less” on it. they will roll that before they get a number and color the appropriate answer in.
