I have seen many posters talking about this and I wondering how it works and what are the materials required to do it well? Pictures would be great!

Thanks!

Clip to ScrapBook #2

I saw the post last year for Behavior bingo - I copied 2 100 charts and laminated them. One I attached with magnets to the blackboard and the other I cut up and put in a container (also attached to the blackboard). I included a few blanks along with the individually cut numbers. The students chose their reward (extra recess always seems to be the first one in 1st grade, as it is their first year on the "big" playground). When the whole class' behavior warrants, I draw a number for a child to read. Then, I color in that corresponding number with crayon or dry erase marker. I stuck up a small cup for the used numbers. If a child draws a blank it is their choice of which # I color in. Bingo worthy behavior could include quiet walking in hallway, good behavior at specialist time, cafeteria time, etc. Once a bingo is made, the reward is given, numbers erased and a new reward is voted on. It really worked out great last year! Plus my first graders got some practice in identifiying numbers! Good luck! Check the archives for more info!

Hey, I think I might be able to do this with muliplication chart where they would color in the product(answer) but what could be the strategy? To fill in a row or obtain a total number? hm......

I like that idea! I could change from regular behavior bingo to one using the multilplication table at the end of the year when we begin working on multiplication (I teach 2nd grade). With regular behavior bingo the object is to get all numbers in one row, column, or in a diagonal filled in. I think you could do the same with a multiplication chart.

I love the Behavior Bingo idea! I usually put a small sponge ball in a jar every time the class' behavior warrants a reward. When they fill the jar they earn a special privilege of their choice. However, I'm going to try this with my first graders in September.

I implemented Behavior Bingo in my 2nd grade class last year and the kids loved it. I use a 100 pocket chart...all the numbers came with it-so this made my life easier not having to make something (for once!)

I am going to let my kids pick the reward they get each time. I am thinking that we will make a list on the board and then I will narrow it down to three and we will vote. I want them to feel like it's something they are responsible for and therefore will get to choose thier reward.

Hope that makes sense!

Hollywood Themed Behavior Bingo
Old 07-05-2007, 06:54 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #17

I attached my example designed for a "movie/Hollywood" room. I cut up different representations of numbers using base ten blocks. One of the first math concepts I introduce is place value so I am going to reinforce that by using these cards. I think I will have students draw a a number out and let the student tell everyone what the number is. I am also going to alternate a prize everytime we play. I will probably post what the prize is on a sentence strip above the bingo poster.

Behavior Bingo...how long does it take???
Old 07-09-2007, 08:57 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #22

If the kids get bingo, then they get a party right? This is similar to what I do now, only I have hearts in a jar. Whenever they get a compliment or are doing a great job, I give them a heart. I give them about 4-5 hearts per day, and there are 250 hearts total. It takes them a good two months to earn a party.

How long do you think it would take them to get bingo? I don't want them getting bingo every 20 days, ya know what I mean? Does anyone do it that can tell me on average how long it takes them to earn bingo?

Since the idea is that the students display good behavior (in our school that also equates to have good character as we are a character education school) I was thinking about using 'Campers showing Character'.

Behavior BINGO Rewards

Jen,
I was in no way thinking PARTY! I am thinking that I will make a cube with reward possibilities on it, like extra 15 min recess, treat for the class, popsicles, free time, etc., and choose someone to roll the die when they get BINGO. I am planning to keep it enjoyable for the kids, but simple and cheap!

Well when I say "party", I'm not thinking full out! I actually use the same types of rewards as you do, only I usually let the kids choose the type of rewards they'd like. This usually ends up rewarding me b/c I get time to do my work while they have free time, a movie, or whatever else they'd like to do. I usually give them a "party" that lasts about 40 minutes tops!

That sounds better than what I was thinking you meant.
I am hoping that they get BINGO every couple of weeks or so, especially at the beginning. I guess it will depend on just how "lucky" they are at drawing numbers.

Also, to those who have done this before, once they get a BINGO, do those numbers go back in the pot, or do you just keep going? That could also determine how often they got BINGO.

Once my class gets a Bingo, we erase the board and start over (with all numbers back in). By the time they get a Bingo, they are really close to getting at least 2 or 3 more, so I think it would be too close together.

I had never heard of this before. I love the concept and will definitely try it out next year. Behavior management is always an area we all can improve upon, depending on the class. My main problem the last few years is getting every student to turn in their work. I already use bee tickets for behavior and those work great. I may use the bingo for work habits.

I like the Behavior Bingo idea too!
Old 07-09-2007, 02:35 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #29

I think I finally have accountability for behavior in all aspects now.

Class behavior: Behavior Bingo

Table behavior: Table points (The ones with the most points get to choose their math games first, etc.)

Individual behavior: Changing cards (I have a sports themed (teamwork) classroom this year, so it's the Stears' Scoreboard and they have to change their cards for poor behavior choices).

Sorry to add to the topic change here!

As far as the original post goes: I have 5 small-ish (47" x 47") BB's in my room and I am using them as follows: Calendar, numbers chart/morning work, classroom jobs, writing center, library (just right books and genres). I also have 2 BB's in the hallway and those will be used for displaying classwork and such. I know for the first day I will have one set up as a football field with the students' names on footballs...I don't know the title yet. And then the other one I will reserve for their 2nd grade goals (After we talk about all the cool things we will be learning about this year, the students will write their goals (i.e., I want to be able to read chapter books, etc.) on sunshine die cuts and the BB will be made up to look like a sky with the title, "Our Future is So Bright."

I am trying to figure out what I am going to do with my "Star of the Week." I have a couple of closet doors that could be covered...or maybe the classroom door? I am not sure on that yet. My word wall will probably be a fake BB (with colored paper and a border)...my real BB's are too small.

Hope this helps a little. Thanks for the Behavior Bingo idea!

...I don't think I'm going to do it this year.

It just took too long for my kids to get a BINGO, so it wasn't that important to them.

I had a very multi-level system of rewards/consequences in place last year where individual students got rewarded monthly (school wide program), groups got rewarded with free choice minutes daily (they started each day with 10 and could gain or lose), and the whole class got rewarded through behavior bingo- but it took up to 2 months, or longer, to get a bingo.

I was new to 2nd last year and still had a bunch of stuff from the teacher I replaced in my desk- I found a marble jar, so I think I might try that this year for whole class rewards... I'm just not sure, but I don't think I'll use Behavior bingo again.
