Classroom Bingo

All I can think about is first week of school activities. I still don’t know for sure what grade I will be teaching so, I have been trying to think of ideas that would work for any grade. The first week of school, especially in the lower grades, is spent learning names and routines. I came up with a super simple name game idea!
Classroom Bingo!
Create bingo boards with your kid’s names and pictures. You could even include other important people in your school like the principal, nurse and librarian. This would be a fun activity to play for a few minutes each day during the first week of school. I created a little sample for you using my family and friends. (Obviously, yours will be waaaay cuter; I just wanted you to get the idea!)

Kids will LOVE seeing their pictures on the bingo board and learning their classmates names. I would make as many bingo boards as I needed to include everyone then just print off a couple copies of each board. You could even make a giant bingo board with everyone on it!  Just run these through the laminator, make a set of calling cards and you are ready for a fun first week of school activity! 
 I hope your kids will love this activity!
