Back to School BINGO!! Fully Editable!!*
PLUS: What Did You Do This Summer? Activity
Fun activities for students to do the first couple of days of school! Each activity has four different boards so your class can play more than once--FOUR times even!!
Back to School BINGO:
I have included four different Bingo boards. Each board has mostly unique boxes with only a few overlaps. I call out the "summer events" one of two ways. One, I just randomly pick boxes to call out (which is easiest); or two, I cut out the 25 boxes and randomly draw them each time. Either way, the kids have a lot of fun with this! You can start out playing one straight line bingo, then continue for a two line bingo, then a frame, then blackout! The first three boards have some basic summer activities/events with some more unique ones. The fourth board is an "easier" board with mostly activities/events most kids would do over the summer. That way you can choose based on your classes! Of course, each board is editable to suit the needs of YOUR classroom only (*see note below).
What Did You Do This Summer?
For this activity, students go around the room and try to find other students who participated in the activities on the board. When they find someone, that student initials in the box and then they look for someone else to initial another box. This continues until they get as many boxes initialed as possible. The catch is . . . a student can only initial each of the other students' sheets one time! In other words, each student should have as many unique initials on their sheet as possible. I have also included four different boards for this activity so you can play it more than once!
