This is a GAME that is not a game to my students. It is "work" but they just don't know it's "work". They are learning but they just don't know it. I am just finding ways to get them to know Louisiana people and no matter how hard they try - they will never get to meet/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 teacher 'way up north'. I didn't, and haven't, and won't, plus I have been doing for so long now. Basically, I have been adding a few new ones each year. Plus everything is just "freebies" and they are all Louisiana.
However, this is MY #10 to about 19 of 24 History Bingos that I am posting, and this deals with people that are not you normal people. 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 people from everywhere.
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, before holidays, 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 do have Bingos that I call out questions and some of them or here on TPT.
I am always reading blogs, emails, checking out web stuff, and checking Pinterest, and reading various magazines every day so I NEVER know where a new idea will hit me.
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' from institutes, in-services, and some neat places/things around Louisiana.
