For an emergency substitute lesson I have 2 bingo games. Both are purchased games with game cards and a CD. One game is made up of musical instrument sounds and the other is sound we hear around us. I use the instruments bingo for grades 2 -4 and the sounds bingo for grades K-2. I use math chips for extra bingo chips and I photo copied the bingo cards in the one set to make enough for the whole class. This means there may be multiple winners but I deem the first one to yell “bingo” as the winner. It is a good ideao to make sure that there are no duplicates within a group if the students are sitting in groups. They love to play these games and want to keep going until they fill up most of their card. I sometimes leave little things for prizes such as coloured pencils or stickers.
