Each student begins by completing the questions on the half-sheets of paper to tell about themselves. You can choose any questions that you prefer. After they complete the half-sheet, they hand it to the teacher. The teacher provides the class with a list of student names and the students write one name in each box. Make sure to tell the student to write the name in random order. If there are more boxes than students in your class, you can ask specialists, the nurse, the custodian, or the principal to fill out a paper too. Make sure to go over the different ways a student can win the BINGO game.
To Play: Pick one half-sheet and read the answers out loud. See if anyone can guess who the mystery student is before reading the name at the end. Students then mark that space on their bingo board. For example: If Teddy was picked, the students would put a marker on Teddy’s name on their board. You can use BINGO markers, pasta, etc. Keep playing until all the students have been revealed. You may buy candy, bookmarks, pencils, etc. for prizes.
