Have you ever played Bingo, Teacher Faculty Meeting Bingo that is? If you haven't, then I found a treat for you on Twitter. I watch social media closely and it's my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.
Teacher faculty meetings are a necessary evil. But they could be a lot more fun if you used the Official Teacher Faculty Meeting Bingo Card I found on Cindy Tucker‘s Twitter. It works just like regular bingo, except instead of numbers and letters, you fill up a spot once something happens during the meeting that fulfills a space requirement.
The card is filled with boxes that will make you chuckle. Among the ones listed in the example are “someone makes a deadline sound far more serious and dramatic than it actually is” and “someone at your table is grading papers.” It'll also help you make it through your next meeting. The next time you hear someone use the phrase “be careful what you send through your work email,” you won't be rolling your eyes at how repetitive these meetings are, but grinning about your secret bingo board. One word of caution though, it's not a good idea to shout “bingo!” if you get four in a row during the meeting. You can find the bingo square at We Love Teachers.
What bingo boards would you add? Do you have any entertaining stories from past teacher faculty meetings related to one of these bingo boxes? Please share!
