Three weeks until the 2017-2018 school year begins! I’m currently planning as much as I can before September is upon us! I’m always looking for interesting and fun ideas to start off the school year. I usually begin the first day by allowing my new students to become familiar with the classroom, school building, and general routines. We have a social skills group at the conclusion of the day and my students LOVE to play bingo during this time. They love the magnetic chip set that we use as well as winning their favorite candy as a prize. I’m always looking far and wide for bingo games that build in language for my students. Many of my students work on several language programs that address filling in the function of items. (e.g. “What do you do with a scissors?” (cut paper)) I find that my students show the most success with these programs when we work on them incidentally instead of during direct instruction. I decided to create a school supply bingo game with function call out prompts to make this program more meaningful and interesting. This game can be used throughout the school year to work on labeling the function programs. Click the link below to try this product out in your classroom or home!
I hope that you’re enjoying these last weeks of summer! Thanks for joining me!!
