Get rid of book reports for good, and use this Reading Response Bingo that is perfect for grades 5-8 (middle school) and can be used with any fiction novel that students are studying!
These activities are meant to be done independently for use with a whole class novel, a reading group novel, a self-selected novel, as homework, in-class, or in place of that boring book report. Each column of this Bingo board is divided into a different category (Random, Evaluation, Apply/Analyze, and Design), encouraging students to perform different levels of Bloom's Taxonomy. Some tasks involve writing, while others include drawing and more artistic outlets. We hope your students enjoy this Reading Response Bingo!
