Peace Bingo for the Classroom

Peace Bingo for the Classroom

This post has a free peace bingo game printable with all the materials required for a classroom activity. Of course, it may be played with just one child at home as well. The idea is that is it played in silence to help calm a child and focus on peaceful things. 

Do you need a little peace in your classroom for whatever reason—the children have heard some terrible news, are too excited for the holidays, or some reason known only to the children?  This bingo game could be played to cool things down and help the children be calm.  The idea is to play the game in pretty much silence, with students raising their hands instead of yelling bingo if they win.

Disturbing current events discussions in the classroom or at home would benefit from ending with a calming activity such as this, to allow students to redirect themselves to nicer thoughts.

With the sometimes terrible news children can’t help but hearing,  I thought a calming activity would be nice to have on hand for the children.  The game could be played in silence to calming music, or it could be a whisper game.  Good luck and positive thoughts to everyone dealing with recent events.

  1. This is a wonderful idea, Carolyn. Even if kids weren’t affected by any of the recent events, there’s a good chance that school aged kids have heard about it and seen it replayed over and over on TV. My husband was even commenting last night that it gets him down when he sees these things over and over on TV and he has to force himself to think about positive things too. This will be so helpful to some little ones to think about positive things! Great freebie.

      Jackie, I started this thinking about kids in Hurricane Sandy, and today I knew I just had to finish it. The 24/7 news is especially difficult to listen to right now. Maybe it will help some class somewhere. Thank you for your kind words. Carolyn
