This writing BINGO will be sure to captivate your little writers! This activity could be implemented in many different ways....writer's work shop, a center, morning work, or even homework. Personally, I find doing a writing activity with the whole class intimidating. So, I break the class into 2 groups. One group does BINGO while I work with the other group on a writing activity. My students LOVE doing BINGO. Rarely do I have behavior issues with those who are working independently with BINGO because they are captivated by the topics.
The idea is for students to complete the BINGO by choosing 5 activities to complete in row...horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, and mark them off of the BINGO sheet. Depending on how you implement this activity in your class, you can assign them to get BINGO once or more than once a month. If you assign them to complete multiple bingos, you can have them use different colors to mark off each BINGO. For the free write, students have the choice to write about anything they would like or choose a BINGO topic they absolutely love that doesn't fall in their BINGO "row."
