Coping Skills + BINGO! = Fun Learning!
What better way to teach and reinforce healthy coping skills than through a fun game like BINGO!? This relevant and visually appealing game will have your students begging to play more, all the while learning different tools and tricks that can support them to get through the hard stuff of living, relieve uncomfortable feelings and help them to feel calmer and more relaxed.
Why Should We Teach & Practice Healthy Coping Skills?
All young (and older) people experience stressful moments, days and even what can feel like years. Teaching and practicing healthy coping tools can help us get through through those tough times with a bit more ease. As I tell my students, healthy coping skills will not get necessarily get rid of the challenging, stressful situations (especially those we don't have control over), but they can help us to make better, more empowering choices, they can help us to see the silver lining, cup-is-half-full perspectives, and they can help us to take good, kind-care of ourselves (which is a way to fuel our strengths and resilience).
What Makes this Coping Skills BINGO! Game Unique
✪ This coping tool package offers two different ways to play. There is the more traditional route of ready-to-print-laminate-and-go 30 distinct Bingo playing cards. The second option is a Do-It-Yourself format where students can choose their favorite 24 (out of 35) coping skills and design their very own unique paying card, which can double as a souvenir they can take home with them.
✪ All calling cards come with clues, increasing student engagement as they guess what coping tool has been called.
✪ WInner's Prize included in the form of a colorable Coping Skills Fortune Teller!
