This is a remix of the ZAP! game that I made 7 years ago. I decided to change the name to Bazinga! because Sheldon.
I found this 22x28 poster board at Hobby Lobby for $2.99, library pockets from Naeir, glitter stickers from Dollar Tree, and index cards from....7 years ago. lol
I just wrote on the cards this time because I hate cutting. I'm just now realizing I didn't put any numbers on the pockets yet. I wanted to you use stickers but also, ew. So I will just write them on and save myself the trouble.
Here's the list I used:
- Bazinga! (lose all points)
- Switch scores with another team
- Add two points to your score
- Bazinga! all teams
- Add two points to another teams score
- Add two points to all other teams score S
- Subtract two points from your score
- Subtract two points from another teams score
- Pick another team to Bazinga!
- Subtract two points from all other teams score
- Double your score
- Multiply your score by 1/2
- Multiply your score by 2
- Youngest team members rotate to the next team
- Tallest team members rock, paper, scissors to win two points
- Shoot a basket for 3 points
FYI, I used wheelofnames.com to make a list of all the practice games I use. I turn homework or worksheets into a powerpoint of problems and then spin the wheel to choose which game we play.
Custom colored. Obvi.
Another thing I halfway did last year that I am doing better this year is a monthly theme for my Instagram board. I decorate a bulletin board to look like Instagram. It's the same name as my teacher IG account, @msmilligram.
Each month, I ask the students to send me pictures around a theme...baby pics, prom, homecoming, Valentine's Day, summer break, etc. But I basically made it up randomly. This year, I'm going to use this picture of my blank board and put a caption on it with the theme. Then I can post it to Instagram so they know the monthly theme.
I updated last week's post with this Polaroid photo frame but I had to share it here too because it's so cute! I also added velcro speech bubbles for each grade.
