Bingo Card Generator

I’ve put together a bingo card generator:

It’s a response to the Bingo card generator at

I’ve been using the Teach-nology generator for a while for making bingo cards. My generator makes a few improvements to the way that the user operates. In particular, the user doesn’t have to hit ‘Shuffle’ and print for each student.

My kids tend to enjoy bingo. I let them play a game as a reward after a test. It’s more suited to less experienced learners, especially ones learning to match sounds to the words that they read. With more experienced learners, one can say the definition of the word, draw a picture on the board or do a charade instead of just saying the word.

    Good stuff.

    I’ll be starting teaching on a part time basis very soon, so I shall expect to be using the TEFL site. I’ll let you know how it goes!

    There are still some parts that I want to improve. The cards would look better if they were printed landscape. With CSS, it should be possible to specify that a page is printed landscape. However, none of the browsers seem to support this.
