This product takes the place of a traditional reading log and is perfect for students to track their nightly reading in a fun way. These BINGO boards include silent reading options, as well as read aloud options to promote better oral fluency. Students will read in a different way for 24 nights out of the month, completing the BINGO board. They will cross off each box as they complete it.
This product includes 10 different BINGO boards for months September-June. It also includes the same 10 boards with "blank" months so that you can write in your own months. Each board also has the option of writing in the amount of minutes you would like your students to read each night.

In my classroom, I was getting tired of the nightly reading log battle. For years I had passed out a weekly reading log and required students to read each night for 15 minutes, only to have my most struggling readers quickly fill it out the day it was due. I went back and forth between doing the basic “Title, Author, Date, Pages Read” and requiring students to complete a written response of some sort. After thinking about the purpose of assigning a reading log, I decided that my purpose was to make nightly reading an enjoyable and productive experience for my of students.
At the beginning of the month, I tape a new monthly BINGO sheet inside the front cover of my students’ homework agenda (a homework folder would work too). Then I collect it at the end of the month. While I understand that students could still
just cross off the different boxes and submit it, I hear them come in to school telling their friends that they “read in the bathtub” or “read to Gramma’s poodle.” That is my goal.
