Fast Food BINGO + Fishing!

We love to play Bingo in my classroom! But, who doesn't, right? Of course, for fast food month, we had to have a Fast Food Bingo. We also used these words as our vocab words for the month. (I store all of my Bingo boards inside of page protectors in a binder.)

I decided to add a new way to play Bingo and it was a blast! I got a few magnetic fishing games at the dollar tree, added paperclips to our calling cards, and BOOM - we were fishing for our calling cards. My students loved taking a turn being the fisher/caller!
Simple - and tons of extra fun. You can get this Fast Food Bingo set along with a bunch of fast food materials at my TPT store. And I have more fun ways I play Bingo, so stay tuned, I'll share them sometime (Is the suspense just killing you?!).

Do you add any fun twists to your Bingo games?

McDonald's Breakfast Community Trip

Last month was "Fast Food month" in my classroom. This year I'm trying something new and trying to focus on more functional themes than cutesy elementary themes. Our community trip was to McDonald's. I figured it would be a nice easy trip for the beginning of the year.

Check out this awesome fast food pack available here that you can use to prepare to a fast food restaurant like McDonalds!

Each student had $3.30 to budget. We looked over the menu I created with our options (aka the cheap options) and the amount of money needed for each.
Also, students cut out what they wanted to order so they could use these strip to order verbally, and then pass it on to the cashier. This worked out great for the cashiers because they couldn't always understand my kids. I was so proud of my kids when they ordered and handed over their money!

After they were done eating we went on a scavenger hunt to find things like the bathrooms, napkins, and other signs. It was a great trip!

Functional Task Cards & TPT sale!

TPT just reached 100K likes on facebook, so they are offering a 10% flash sale through 10/14. Use the code FB100K to get the 10% off. Plus, I put everything in my TPT store on sale too, so you can all get some double bonuses!

Two of my new favorite products are my task cards. These are great to use during independent work time.
The dollar over method is a popular one in special education. In case you aren't familiar with it, the idea is the student counts out the dollars for the number in front of the decimal point and then adds one dollar for the change. These Dollar Over task cards practice that skill by having the student circle the amount of dollar they need according to the price on the card.
These "Do you have enough?" task cards focus on the student counting the money they have and then comparing that to the price to see if they have enough money or not.

Do you use task cards in your class? I'm trying to think of more ways to use them! They are pretty awesome :)
