I have had a few people ask me how I do my Behavior Bingo. I thought today I would talk about how I use it! It is extremely easy and the kids just love it!
This is this years bingo board. I still have yet to put the numbers in. But do you see the basket? That's where I place my decorated second set of numbers. I also have a BINGO poster that explains how they can earn a bingo chip as I call them, but they really are the decorated chips from the basket.
Here are the posters I use to explain how to earn chips. The first one is the one I am using this year and the second one is from previous years.
So how does this all work? Well, I use this as a whole class reward system. You could easily use this as individual or groups by printing out a 100 board and they color in the spaces.
So when the whole class does something that I feel is positive behavior they can earn pulls from the bucket. Like walking quietly in the hall, having great behavior in specials, a great note from a sub, anything like that.
Right away, the two hopping helpers of the week come in and pull however many chips I tell them from the bucket and place it in front of the number in the pocket chart.
Once they have a row filled up they earn a BINGO party. It can be a popcorn party, pj party, or whatever else your class thinks about. We usually do a vote. Parties can happen a few times a year depending on how well the kids respond to the system.
This year, I am also doing the mystery person. So when the mystery person does their job and I reveal who it is at the end of the day, the class will earn chips. I will reward the whole class because no one will know who the mystery person is. I will also give that mystery person something special too! I hope this helps with understanding how to do a whole class behavior bingo!
Last year I did two separate behavior bingo's for my literacy class and my homeroom class. Instead of having 2 pocket charts and 2 different sets of numbers I just made a 100 board on PowerPoint and had students color in the numbers when they were pulled.
If you would like more information just ask! Maybe this will be a new tool for you to use this coming school year!
Have a great Saturday!
