### Classroom Resources

• Get started on the "math" printable worksheets.

### What's in the Printable Worksheet Pack

This printable pack consists of 9 printable worksheets for your child to play the fractions bingo game:

• 6 different bingo board sheets with pre-drawn pie charts. Note to teacher/parent: these sheets still require shading (colouring pencils or highlighters) to fill in the fractions. We suggest each child/student shade them for their friends before starting each session.
• 1 empty bingo board sheet for custom pie charts.
• 2 sheets of bingo draw tickets.

How to play:

1. Make sure fractions are shaded into the bing board sheets before starting.
2. Cut out the bingo draw tickets and put them into a bowl or bag. These tickets represent the "bingo" number balls in this situation.
3. Draw the bingo draw tickets and announce the fractional number.
4. Players will need to cross out the fractions on your board when and if they are called out.
5. The first player to complete crossing out 5 fractions in a row wins.
