IN COLLECTION

Prior to beginning the lesson: (1) Photocopy the **Problem of the Day** onto transparency paper for the overhead projector; (2) Photocopy **Bingo Game Board** (1 per student); (3) Photocopy **Bingo Caller Cards** (1 per small group).

**Group Size:** Small groups

**Learning Objectives:**

Students will be able to:

- Read fractions and identify written fractions.

**Problem of the Day** (see attachment), **Bingo Game Board** (see attachment), **Bingo Caller Cards** (see attachment); paper markers or pennies, scissors, overhead projector

**Procedures:**

Lesson Introduction: Display **Problem of the Day** on the overhead projector. Ask students: *What strategy should we use to solve this problem?* Guide them towards drawing a picture. Solve the problem together as a class. Students can copy problem and solution into math notebooks.

- Distribute a
**Bingo Game Board**to each student. Explain to students:*Today you will be playing Bingo with fractions. First, we need to fill out our game boards.* - Call out fractions from
**Bingo Caller Cards**and show students how to put a fraction inside each square of their game board. Make sure students understand to place fractions randomly around the game board and not in order so that each player’s board is different. - Divide students into small groups of four or five. Give each group a designated area of the classroom to play the game.
