Roll and Build Bingo

Early Years (Age 3 – 6)

Curriculum Goal

Kindergarten: Demonstrating Literacy and Mathematics Behaviour

  • Demonstrate an understanding of numbers, using concrete materials to explore and investigate counting, quantity, and number relationships (#15).


  • One-on-one, pair-based game.


  • Roll and Build Bingo game board (Appendix A)
  • Two dice
  • Unifix cubes in two different colours. Players will be given cubes of the same (note: 95 is the absolute maximum number of cubes needed per player)


  • Player 1 tosses two dice and finds the sum of the two numbers (e.g., 3 + 4 = 7). They will then build a tower on the corresponding square using that many unifix cubes (e.g., a seven-cube tall tower on the number seven square).
  • Player 2 takes a turn, repeating the same procedure.
  • The game continues until someone gets a bingo, either by occupying four squares in a row or five squares in a column.

Look Fors

  • Are students able to accurately comprehend and represent number in the three different forms?
