One of our favorite activities is to play BINGO with our students. We have three lunch periods and approximately 300 kids per lunch period. After announcing that we will be playing BINGO, kids have the opportunity to get BINGO cards (which can be printed here, reload the page for more cards) from a table located in the middle of the cafeteria. We give them about 5-7 minutes to grab cards, one per student, and then we begin calling numbers. It is more fun if you have a authentic BINGO cage (we bought our off of Amazon, click here to purchase).
The trick is to have fun while calling the numbers and to have silly prizes, although candy is a cheap and easy prize. We have found this activity to something that our kids post about in social media they like it so much! So, have fun and start BINGO with your kids.
