In the classroom is my favorite place to play games. Because most of the time the students don't realize how much they are actually learning! And to see them OWN their education is priceless.
That's why I teach.
That's why I inspire.
One of my favorite games to play is when we have a concept that has been introduced in the grade (or sometimes grades) prior and we are working towards mastery. Something like teaching perfect squares in 7th grade. Students have been introduced to this topic two years prior, so we really don't need to teach it as in depth as other content. So we practice this through one of our "mini-lab" days with a fun game of Perfect Square BINGO.
Here's a sample of one of the twenty different cards I use:
You can play this game in teams if you have a large class, or individually if you have a smaller class size.
I like to also give a "small, but fabulous prize" to each winner. It's amazing what kids will do for a Jolly Rancher!
Hope you have as great of a time as I do incorporating fun teaching methods into your class!
