Tired of assessing dull reading summaries from students? We were, and that why we created this product over the summer of 2013.

This is a sampler which gives you access to three out of twenty-five activities found on our Reading Notebook Bingo Cards. Use the hyperlinks in the preview to navigate through the three of the activities' directions, teacher models, and rubric.

The entire product can be purchased from THIS LINK, and that purchase will give you access to all twenty-five of our instead-of-a-dull-summary activities.

The activities can be taught whole-class if the PPT version of the product is projected on your Active Board, but they can also be loaded on your classroom's set of computers or on the hard-drives of computers in a school lab--where students can learn the activities independently, choosing the activity for the week that most appeals to them.

Important copyright limitation, if you end up purchasing: these Reading Bingo Activities may NOT be loaded on a website that is not password protected; if your students do not enter a personal password or a group code in order to access your website or network, you may not post these at a website.

Thank you for your interest in this free preview. Our students now very much enjoy writing weekly summaries of their reading, and assessing them is much more interesting to us now because each student chooses his/her own path as they read every month.

Be sure to visit our ALWAYS WRITE website for dozens and dozens of free lessons and resources that are ready to be used.
