When you think of a bingo card, you probably think of a piece of paper printed with a grid of squares, each square containing a different number. While it is true this type of bingo card is used in the standard game of bingo, more and more teachers and educators are finding that they want bingo cards where the cells on the grid contain words, phrases, or other items chosen specifically by the teacher in order to teach a particular lesson. In order to create such cards, the teacher needs to become a bingo card generator!

First of all though, we need to discuss why on earth would a teacher want such customized bingo cards? The reason is actually simple: many teachers have in fact found that bingo is ideal game for helping to teach many different subjects, including reading, math, foreign languages, ESL (English as a Second Language), and it can even prove useful in corporate business training. Of course, other classroom activities still remain important - but bingo can make a contribution to learning, by providing a fun and enjoyable way to end lessons, or help students to memorize important facts.

Educational versions of bingo are played just like the normal game (with the teacher taking the role of bingo caller), except instead of using standard bingo cards printed with numbers, the teacher instead uses bingo cards printed with items chosen for the specific lesson. For example, in a reading lesson, the bingo cards might be printed with sight words (words that children must learn to recognize and read by sight rather than sound out), or in a French lesson with chosen French words, etc. Additionally, in some versions of educational bingo, the teacher may choose to give a clue rather than read out words directly - for example, the teacher might call out an English word, and the student's job is to find the matching French word on the card, etc.

The only real limit is the teacher's imagination, provided of course that bingo cards with the teacher's chosen items can be obtained. Fortunately, getting bingo cards is easy and cheap - with the a PC, a printer, and some inexpensive bingo card maker software - http://www.bingocardprinter.com/ a teacher can print out an unlimited number of custom bingo cards, on any subject they like, whenever like, with incredible ease.
