February is the shortest month but it can feel like the longest! Check out this resource guide for a few February classroom resources that will help make this month a little more manageable.
VALENTINE'S DAY BINGO
February can be a tough month, especially with classroom behaviors starting to pop up. One way to help fix those little behaviors before they escalate is to implement a classroom bingo. The Valentine's Day Bingo is the perfect classroom management resource to encourage students to make positive choices.
- Choose a focus – something like on task, voice level, transitions or whatever your class needs to focus on.
- Decide on a prize. This can be done by you or the whole class. Remember they don't have to cost a penny!
- Encourage students to earn bingo pieces.
- Reward students with a bingo piece for postive classroom choices.
