I’ve had three snow days in a row, nestled around the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, which makes for a nice long 6 day weekend for myself. I’ve spent most of the break reading Teach Like Finland (see affiliate link below for your copy!) and reflecting over some of the easy strategies Walker suggests for implementing more movement into your classroom and building classroom community at the beginning of the school year. One of the strategies he suggests is using classroom bingo to build relationships with students within the first few days of the school year.
I’ve used similar Bingo boards in my classroom before. You can find great back-to-school ones, like these by some great teachers on TeachersPayTeachers:
I started wondering about how I could come back to school with my students after such a long break and rebuild that classroom community that we worked so hard to build at the beginning of the school year. And then it dawned on me… classroom BINGO!
I made this Snow Day Bingo that I wanted to share with you FOR FREE! You read that correctly… it is completely free and all you have to do is download the link below. All that I ask is that you share with your friends and colleagues and let me know how it worked out in your classroom!
