This bingo game inspires kids to write independently. It can be used as an enrichment activity to engage early finishers in class, or can be sent home with students as a summer challenge. Attach it to the inside cover of a composition or spiral notebook so that students can return all of their written essays along with the bingo board to school to earn a prize, recognition, or whatever incentive you choose to award. I used this to encourage my fourth grade students to write during the holidays before their STAAR writing test. The more they write, the better they will write! The kids will have fun while practicing their writing skills.
