What are my recommendations for use in your classroom?


◾ I recommend using this in the first days of school at the start of the new school year. You can also use this people BINGO activity at the start of a new semester, when you have a new group of students.

◾ This resource comes in both color and black-and-white. You can try printing the black-and-white version on colored paper or allow students to sign their names in crayons, colored pencils, or marker to make it a little more fun!

◾ Participate in the BINGO activity yourself! It's a great opportunity for you to learn more about your students and for them to learn about you - right off the bat!

◾ Although this has been aligned to Speaking and Listening standards from the Common Core, I don't recommend taking this for a grade or tying some kind of academic purpose to it. It should be utilized as a fun, low-key icebreaker activity that will help you build community in your classroom.


◾ The activity includes fillable text boxes for students to type in their answers. Please note that this version allows you, the teacher, to edit the statements on the BINGO sheet to best fit your student population. However, this also means that students could delete those statements and replace them with other text, so you'll need to set expectations around this before getting started with the activity.

◾ There are also fillable text boxes for students' names and the date. You can fill in the name text box for each student before sending out the test, if you like, but that will add more work in individually assigning each personalized copy of the PDF to each student.

◾ Assign the test to students via email, Google Classroom, or whatever Learning Management System (LMS) your school/district uses.


What do other customers have to say about this resource?

◾ "I really loved this game. I was able to use it with my high school Ex Ed class. My students have a very wide range of abilities and strengths, and I think everyone had a lot of fun. Even the staff was able to enjoy!" (Thank you, Morganne L.!)
