Add life to your independent reading program! If you want to encourage your students to love reading and talking about the books they read, toss the regular reading log and try out Independent Reading BINGO.
This download includes three different fully editable BINGO cards (including one blank one!) to choose from. Encourage your students to think differently about the books they choose to read with creative categories like "a book with a great first line" or "a book recommended by a friend or family member." Independent reading BINGO also promotes student choice while guiding students to analyze the books they select.
I use these in my own classroom and have found them to be a great tool. Students love talking about the books they read to meet different categories, and reluctant readers also love that it feels like a game! I love that it's flexible and open-ended!
Designed with grades 6-12 in mind, each square can be edited if you want to include a particular category to meet your students' needs. Both PDF and Word versions included! Also makes a great bulletin board resource!
