We're still in school here in Fairfax County, Virginia, but summer is getting closer--we can taste the Popsicles, smell the chlorine, feel the sunshine. My two boys (ages 12 and 8) and I have experienced summers that zoomed by so quickly that we barely noticed them happening, so to avoid that, we like to make lists to help us focus on the important stuff. Our list "100 Things to Do this Summer" included everything from blowing bubbles to opening a bank account ("Another 100 Things to Do this Summer" was the following year's creatively titled list). Our "Top 10 Day Trip Adventures" got us moving to a local farm for peach picking, a nearby-ish beach for some sand and surf, the small children's museum in a town about an hour away.
So, with an adventurous spirit in mind and no time to waste, we put together a BINGO board to help guide you and your students (or even your family) through the season, making the most of summer.
You can easily modify our summer BINGO board to include locations and events specific to your community or the age of your students.
Want to encourage your students to plan their own adventure this summer? On the last day of school, give copies of BINGO Boards to your students along with a note wishing them a happy, learning-filled summer. Or take it to the next level and spend some time creating one as a class using our Bingo Board as a template. Are you a math teacher? Have students create a board specific to finding math in the real world. History teachers could help students design a board related to historical eras or figures. The possibilities are endless.
How do you help your students make the most of their summer vacation?
