This is a GAME that is not a game to my students. It is work but they just don't know they are learning but they are. I am just finding ways to get them to know Louisiana has over 400 festivals each year and no matter how hard they try - they will never get to experience them all.
Over the past two dozen plus years I have created lots of different ways for my student to earn a little bit of Extra Credit if they want to work 'up and beyond'. Generally I use these items in class just so I know they don't cheat. Over the past month I have been accused of copying this idea from another teach 'way up north'. I didn't, and haven't plus I have been doing for so long now. Plus everything is just "freebies" and they are all Louisiana.
However, this is MY 14th of 24 History Bingos that I am posting, and this one deals with towns or cities. I did not copy or steal this. I researched it myself. You can find them all on my website, plus in THIS case Louisiana has over 400 festivals during the year.
This is just another of my Bingo Extra Credit games that I have on my own website. It goes WAY BACK but it has always been fun to use. I use them for after an assignment, after a test, after testing at the end of the year, towards the end of class… anytime I just need extra points, or an extra quiet time, I give extra 4-5 points for a completed bingo.
I saw something similar years ago and just got the idea to create a self-bingo that my student might like for extra points since I don’t just give extra credit. You have to EARN them if you want them.
I read blogs, check out web stuff, and check Pinterest, and read various magazines every day so I NEVER know where the NEXT idea will come from.
I am sorry someone thinks I have copied but I haven't. When you have been teaching as long as I have, you just 'learn' and have been to some neat places around Louisiana. Matter of fact I have taken photos in ALL 64 parishes totaling over 10,000 photos.
