Bingo is the game that this video is teaching the kids to get educated in math through, it is the game that serves all the different operations of math; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and it is also the one game that suits all the different age groups.
Teaching kids math through playing games have proved to be one of the successful methods that teachers use at school especially when it comes to those games that are challenging to some extent, just like Bingo. Bingo is a mathematical game that needs a number of children to play it - it could be done to one kid but would not be as challenging - and that is why we consider it best to either be followed at school or else at home but for more than one kid.
The idea behind Bingo is to challenge the kids' skills and knowledge of math by choosing six different numbers - you could also let the kids be the ones to choose them - and then start asking them mathematical questions that will either have the answer on the board or else will not. If the question you have asked is answered on the white board, the kids should shout "Bingo" and say what this answer is and the first one to say "Bingo" would actually be the winner. It is sometimes good to ask questions which their answers are not written to see whether the kids are giving their minds the chance to think first or are just shouting "Bingo" to be the winners.
The best thing about Bingo game in mental maths is that it serves with all the mathematical operations, it works with teaching kids how to add, how to subtract, how to multiply and how to divide and thus it ends up being a good chosen game no matter what the lesson you are going to teach the kid is. Not just that, but Bingo is also good for all the different age groups, all what you will need to do is change the level of difficulty of the question according to the age of the kids you are asking or playing with.
Maths could be taught through different ways and by using different games, those which are suggested for teachers at school as well as those which are suggested for parents homeschooling their kids. Some games need a little bit of thinking with a challenging mood but there are those which are played with some toys that kids prefer at such an early age; such as play doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw91epryD28), Lego (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roMEZv1OObc), building blocks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSMd8kMHIHo) and other small toys which you could get creative with using while teaching your child.
There are different educational videos on this channel that promote ideas for parents and teachers searching for ways to teach their kids math, English, crafts and even cooking, you could work on any idea you find interesting if you please, but we are trying to make it more interesting for your kid to learn and love those lessons given at home.
Counting for kids is the initial step usually taken in math and there are different games for that (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wvSw8hoXPI), English could be taught through playing with Lego as well and not just maths (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmmNwX1bPH4), and knowing more mathematical vocabulary is also an important thing when it comes to teaching and homeschooling the kids (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHi2ZVicVrI).
It is not just about teaching the kids something, but it is also important to bring some educational stories for them, let them hear and watch a video that would deliver a piece of information at the end and which they will enjoy watching (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMDndNpqd8I).
Education could get creative to a great extent and this would be about all the ways and methods used in teaching the kids. Always be creative, motivate the kids while you are teaching them with playing along and also trick them with the questions you tend to ask to test their knowledge and answers and know whether they are giving the right answers or just playing around.
